NTS's random selection program utilizes a statistically valid computer generated random selection process which randomly selects from a designated employee pool. NTS, as an independent third party administrator of your random selection process, assures you and your employees that the selection procedures are fair and equitable. This process meets all regulatory requirements. Selections will be automatically generated at required time increments. Employee selection pools can be updated either by submitting an Excel Spreadsheet, ASCII format, or comma delimited text file submitted by email. The employees selected are cross-referenced with our testing activity database. We may notify you of the need for additional selections in order to maintain compliance in situations where an employee was selected but not tested. This safeguard may be necessary to determine why the test was not performed. Depending on the circumstances, future selection rates may require modification to maintain certain required testing rates.
