Campaign Certification Statements

Australian Government agencies conducting information and advertising campaigns must comply with all relevant policies and processes issued and amended from time to time by the Cabinet Secretary or the Minister for Finance and Deregulation or the agency responsible for such policies, currently the Department of Finance and Deregulation (Finance). The requirements for review and certification of campaigns are determined by the value of the campaign and whether advertising will be undertaken.

The Chief Executive's certification statements are published online after the campaigns have launched.
