9.6 Agency staff
The communications function is a shared responsibility that requires the support, co-operation and interaction of various personnel throughout an agency.
A wide range of government staff are involved in communications activities, including senior managers, policy advisers, program managers and other functional specialists such as researchers, human resource officers, librarians and executive assistants. All staff must meet the requirements of the Tasmanian Government Communications Policy in all aspects of their work.
Managers and supervisors must ensure that the agency communications manager, or his/her nominee, is informed of and/or consulted on internal and external communications activities where appropriate under this policy and agency policies and procedures.
