Relevant Legislation and Policies

Sponsorship arrangements must comply with the Standing Directions of the Minister for Finance under the Financial Management Act 1994 (see Direction 4.2.2 relating to discretionary financial benefits). In pursuance of the Directions, this policy set out principles relating to both financial and non-financial management of sponsorship in more detail.

In accordance with section 16C of the Audit Act 1994, sponsorship arrangements are subject to audit by the Auditor General.

This policy is to be read consistent with the Code of Conduct for the Victorian Public Sector.

This policy supports the Victorian Government Purchasing Board (VGPB) procurement policies, although it is noted that VGPB guidelines do not cover sponsorship or sponsorship-funded purchases. In a given situation, agencies must satisfy themselves whether sponsorship or purchasing policies apply.
