Reconsideration of B-303495--Office of National Drug Control Policy Prepackaged News Stories
B-303495.2, Feb 15, 2005
GAO was asked to withdraw opinion in B-303495, Jan. 5, 2005, and reconsider the analysis upon which the opinion was based. The opinion found that the Office of National Drug Control Policy's (ONDCP) use of appropriated funds to produce and distribute prepackaged news stories violated the publicity or propaganda prohibition.
After considering the issues raised in the request, the Comptroller General declines to withdraw the opinion.
