My Department budgets in line with the subheadings outlined in the Revised Estimates Volume for Public Expenditure (REV). The budget for marketing, media and social media is included in Admin Non-Pay costs, specifically Subhead III:Training, Development, and Miscellaneous Costs.

Depending on the nature of the expenditure, it could also potentially be accounted for as part of our overall consultancy budget. However, the vast amount of our consultancy budget is to provide for the Department's requirement for legal or professional services.

As we budget at this level, we do not have details of projected spend for social media advertising for 2021. There are currently no social media advertising campaigns planned for 2021.
