Section 311A of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 requires Australian Government departments and agencies to set out in their annual reports details of amounts greater than $13,800 (inclusive of GST) paid by or on behalf of them during the year to advertising agencies, market research organisations, polling organisations, direct mail organisations and media advertising organisations.

During 2018–19, CASA contracted market research and advertising agency services for a proposed drone registration and accreditation scheme and placed outdoor and cinema advertising to promote drone safety. Some of these activities were delivered using appropriated funds from a New Policy Proposal in relation to management of drones.

The amounts that CASA paid to media, advertising and direct mail organisations in 2018–19 are detailed in Table B.16 in Appendix B.
