I understand my Department does not have any contracts with public relations agencies or consultants. Press and public relations functions are generally undertaken by my Department's Press Office and Communications Unit.

The engagement of external expertise is only considered where the issues involved require expert skills or capabilities that are not readily available within my Department.
