Advocacy outcome

Our strong message that the Efficiency Dividend is a compounding budget cut that has a disproportionate and destructive impact on the national cultural institutions has been heard.

Just a few days before the Federal election on 18 May, the Coalition Government announced a last minute update to its Budget plan.

“All agencies with an average staffing level of below 200 would be exempt from the efficiency dividend, as would the National Disability Insurance Agency, financial regulators and institutions that maintain Australia’s cultural and historical collections.

Along with the NDIA, the lucky few include the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, Australian War Memorial, National Archives of Australia, National Gallery of Australia, National Library of Australia, and the National Museum of Australia.” FULL ARTICLE HERE
