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.

BJB was awarded a contract in financial year 2004 for $11,430 "for a video to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education. We reviewed the video through ED’s website, which featured an ED logo at the end of the video. This deliverable adequately disclosed ED’s role in its production," the Inspector General reported. [1]
