2019 SSAF Bid

The ANU Observer bid for $74 092.50 for 2019, including camera and audio equipment, rent for an office space, allowances for Editors and other officials, and freedom of information requests. You can read an overview of our SSAF bid here, and a further breakdown here.

2019 Allocation

ANU has offered Observer an allocation of $343 980, which represents approximately 0.8% of the total SSAF pool. You can find the information regarding the allocations here.

A detailed budget will be released as soon as Observer receives information as to office costs. This could constitute a quarter of Observer’s total budget, so such information is needed before we can provide any meaningful breakdown of planned spending.

In accordance with our payment policy, the following allowance payments will be made on 30 November to cover the period 14 September to 30 November. Any ANU student may contact the ANU Observer Arbitration Panel at [email protected] and request that an elected official have their allowance reduced.
