Annotation: This report summarizes the results of the Office of National Drug Control Policy's (ONDCP) National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign.
Abstract: The report discusses: (1) whether ONDCP provided timely financial reports to Congress; how funds for paid advertising were managed and disbursed; and whether ONDCP complied with certain statutory requirements regarding the obligation of funds; (2) what ONDCP has done to develop and implement guidelines for the Campaign in response to program requirements set out in Public Law 105-61 and Public Law 105-277; and (3) whether the evaluation designs for Phases I, II, and III were appropriate; how well the Phases I and II evaluations were implemented; and how effective Phases I and II of the Campaign were in influencing group awareness of different types of paid anti-drug media messages and drug attitudes. The report contains recommendations to the Director of ONDCP regarding development and implementation of certain Campaign guidelines.
