Owner of Texas Drug and Alcohol Testing Company Debarred by FMCSA

On July 14, 2016, Andy Garr, owner of Compliance Services of East Texas, a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)-registered drug collection company, was debarred for 3 years for submitting false statements to FMCSA. Debarment was based on a DOT-OIG investigation.
 
Garr collected numerous drug testing samples from Rapid CDL, a truck driving school affiliated with Panola College. He indicated he would be sending them to a lab for testing and to a medical provider for review prior to returning the results to the school. Our investigation disclosed that Garr never sent the samples to be tested; he instead forged the results using the letterhead from the lab and falsified the doctor’s signature. An inspection by FMCSA discovered the scheme.
 
DOT-OIG conducted this investigation with assistance from FMCSA.
 
Note: A suspension or debarment frequently covers a specific period of time. Please consult the System for Award Management to determine whether a company or individual is currently suspended or debarred.
