Department of Education Review of PR Contracts
In the aftermath of the controversy over the U.S. Education Department (ED) hiring Armstrong Williams as a sub-contractor to promote the No Child Left Behind Act, the department's Inspector General reviewed all PR contacts in the 2002-2004 period. The Inspector-General was particularly investigating whether materials produced under the contract disclosed the Department of Education as its sponsor if they were communicated to the public.
The Inspector-General noted that Hager Sharp was awarded a contract worth $1,832,269 covering the 2002-2004 financial years. "Contract called for clips of media coverage about the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) test, footage of conferences, and a video designed to encourage students to take the test seriously. We reviewed all deliverables associated with the contract. Deliverables were not disseminated to the public," the Inspector General reported.
