ICF International Wins $6.9M Contract With the Office of National Drug Control Policy
ICF International Will Evaluate Drug-free Communities Program
Fairfax, Virginia, December 16, 2009 -
ICF Consulting LLC, a subsidiary of ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), was recently awarded a new, five-year contract valued at nearly $7 million with the Office of National Drug Control Policy to assist with conducting a national evaluation of the Drug Free Communities Program.
This anti-drug program supports community coalitions that mobilize their communities to prevent youth substance abuse in alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, and inhalants. The program enables the coalitions to strengthen their coordination and prevention efforts, encourages citizen participation in substance abuse reduction efforts, and disseminates information about effective programs. ICF will evaluate the program’s success by using a mixed method approach, involving both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis.
"We are pleased to be working with the Office of National Drug Control Policy on this national evaluation. The Drug Free Communities Program has involved hundreds of communities nationwide, and we are very pleased to be bringing our evaluation expertise to this important program," said Maureen Murphy, ICF senior vice president.
