Eligible agencies are not required to sign a Letter of Accession (LoA) to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to access the discounts available under this contract.
Your agency or school should consider any existing contracts you have when you're assessing the suitability of AoG contracts for your business needs. Make sure you honour any current contract arrangements you have, particularly with regards to the notice period and payment on outstanding orders.
Should you have an existing arrangement with any of the vendors on this panel where the discounts are greater than what is available under this contract, refer your Media provider to your current arrangement.
Use the information, tools and guidance available in these pages, to identify how the contract can best meet your needs.
There is no specific process for buying Advertising Media under this agreement. Whether you engage a media or advertising agency, bureau or broker, the process remains unchanged. All media vendors have a list of eligible agencies and have pre-programmed AoG discounts into the back end of their purchasing systems. Baseline discounts should be automated. If you are concerned you are not receiving the AoG discount for Advertising Media, please contact us.
Payment of invoices is due the 20th of the month following the month the invoice was received. Payment is made directly to the vendor or third party media/advertising agency by the agency unless otherwise arranged. AoG prices are negotiated on the understanding that government agencies pay in full, on time.End of process
