Fairfax, Virginia, September 21, 2009 -
ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI) was awarded a new, five-year contract valued at more than $7 million with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Under this task order contract with SAMHSA, ICF is combining its strategic communications capabilities along with those of the company’s recently acquired subsidiary, Macro International (ICF Macro), to assist the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) in creating and delivering messages that emphasize the positive aspects of substance abuse prevention. ICF will convey that prevention works, is cost-efficient, and that through prevention we can make positive changes one community at a time. ICF will play an integral part in advancing prevention communications to selected target audiences, thereby reducing the impact of risk factors for substance abuse.
“Winning this new and large contract underscores the strength of the ICF and ICF Macro combination. Together, ICF International now offers one of the largest marketing and communications agency capabilities in the Washington, D.C. area,” said Kris Tremaine, ICF senior vice president.
“We are happy to continue supporting SAMHSA and this important work,” said Joseph Motter, ICF Macro senior vice president. “Our 20 years’ experience supporting SAMHSA programs, and our combined firms’ multi-dimensional understanding of working with diverse audiences and vulnerable populations will help us to create effective prevention messages and materials for CSAP.”
