A. Military Drug and Alcohol Policy, COMDTINST M1000.10A
1. Per Ref A, Commanding Officers (COs) and Officers in Charge
(OICs) are responsible for ensuring compliance with the CG’s
Drug Abuse Program. COs/OICs must conduct frequent, random
urinalysis tests throughout the fiscal year on a consistent
basis as a means to deter and detect drug abuse.
2. The mandatory drug testing requirements for FY20 remain at
100 percent of active duty/SELRES and 100 percent for new
accessions. To achieve 100 percent coverage thru random
selection, units must test 120 percent of their total PAL for
active duty and reserve by testing 30 percent quarterly, with
the recommendation units test at least 10 percent of their PAL
monthly. Specific testing frequency is left to unit discretion
so long as the 30 percent quota is met each quarter. The primary
method for selection should be the inspection random (IR) drug
testing code. FY20 urinalysis drug testing allocations are
available at
Program/. Monthly reports will be published by PSC-PSD on the
Drug Testing portal page.
3. Drug Testing coordinators (DTCs) must use the DoD web-based
Drug Testing Program (DTP) Lite system, Version Access
to the system will only be granted upon a designation memo sent
via email to the program manager. Samples must be listed with
the 10-digit DoD ID number (found on the back of member ID
cards). Units with members generated on rosters from DA will
need to manually enter their DoD ID numbers into the roster if
the number does not show up. After January 2020, unit samples
listed with social security numbers will be logged as untestable
if the units are not granted waivers by PSC PSD-fs to be on the
Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) exemption list.
4. Memos requesting Full Panel Testing are no longer required
when submitting samples to TAMC.
5. Per Ref (A), Articles 6.I and 6.J, units must retain
urinalysis testing paperwork for the current year plus one
additional year. This includes 1) copies of the DD-Form 2624,
Urinalysis Ledger, Urinalysis Checklist 2) mail receipt showing
date samples were shipped, and 3) corresponding results from
TAMC for each testing event.
6. Per Ref (A), Article 5.D.2, units receiving positive
urinalysis results must report those results to the Coast Guard
Investigative Service (CGIS) for entry into National Instant
Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Upon notification of a
positive urinalysis result, CGIS will work with the unit to
determine if a CGIS investigation is warranted, versus a unit
investigation outlined in Chapter 6 of Ref A. Units must notify
CG PSC PSD-FS of all positive urinalysis result outcomes,
including documented findings of “No Drug Incidents”.
7. Major Command Coordinators (MAJCOMS) must review their
responsibilities and assist units by closely reviewing monthly
drug testing reports to ensure specimens are processed IAW Ref
(A).  MAJCOMS must proactively address reported discrepancies,
especially those leading to rejected/untestable samples. Common
errors can be eliminated thru attention to detail by using DTP
Lite and utilizing the desk guides and urinalysis checklists
provided on the DCMS Drug Testing Portal Page and website in
paragraph 8 below. The TTP is currently under revision to
incorporate additional requirements and other procedural
changes; the update will be posted once approved on or about
December 2019.
