Short-term Interim Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns by Australian Government Departments and Agencies

The Australian Government introduced the Short-term Interim Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns by Australian Government Departments and Agencies in November 2013. The Guidelines have been updated to reflect the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. All non-corporate Commonwealth entities are required to comply with the Guidelines.

The Guidelines provide a framework for the conduct of all publicly funded advertising and information campaigns.

The Department of Finance (Finance) is responsible for supporting the administration of the Guidelines. Commonwealth entities should engage the Communications Advice Branch of Finance early in the development of campaigns to ensure that relevant requirements are met.
