Why there may be charges involved
The core function of OMC is to facilitate the whole of UQ marketing and communications strategy. This core activity is complemented by value added professional and technical services and resources to all units within the University on a competitive cost recovery basis.
Due to the University’s largely decentralised structure, and the placement of marketing and communications teams in most Faculties, Schools and Institutes, OMC has not been resourced to service the daily needs of the entire university. For this reason we are able to minimise administrative overheads to all areas by charging non-central units for the work that we are engaged to perform for them and central units for additional ad hoc work that does not have a significant strategic endeavour. All billable work will be charged on a cost recovery basis which ensures that organisational stakeholders are accessing a high quality service at a commercially competitive rate.
