2018 SSAF Bid

The ANU Observer asked the University for $68,600 for 2018, including camera and audio equipment, administrative fees, allowances for executives, and freedom of information requests. You can read our full SSAF bid including justifications here.

2018 Allocation

ANU has offered Observer an allocation of $32,000. You can find the information regarding the allocation here.

To read the breakdown of how Observer will spend this revised budget, see here.

Regrettably, the ANU informed Observer of certain governance requirements for receipt of SSAF after the last meeting of ANU’s Council of 2018. As such, Observer will only be able to meet those requirements after the ANU council next meets in February to approve changes. The SSAF allocation is therefore provisional and will be awarded in February of 2018.
