Corporate information and resources


Non-corporate Commonwealth entities under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) must comply with the Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns by non-corporate Commonwealth entities. The Department of Finance is responsible for supporting the administration of the guidelines.

The requirements for review and certification of campaigns are determined by the value of the campaign and whether advertising will be undertaken.

As outlined in the guidelines, agency chief executives are required to certify that a campaign complies with the guidelines and relevant government policies.

The Chief Executive's certification statements for Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade advertising campaigns are published on this page after the campaigns have launched.
