The Independent Communications Committee (ICC) was appointed to provide advice to Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (FMA Act) agencies in relation to proposed advertising campaigns valued at more than $250,000.
This committee comprised of Dr Allan Hawke AC, Ms Helen Williams AO and Ms Anthea Tinney PSM.
Advertising campaigns with expenditure in excess of $250,000 were considered by the ICC which provided a report to the responsible agency Chief Executive on compliance with key aspects of the previous Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns by Australian Government Departments and Agencies (March 2010).
Agency Chief Executives considered the ICC’s report on compliance before they could certify that a campaign complied with the Guidelines.
The ICC was supported by a Secretariat within the Department of Finance.
