(6) The Department is subject to whole of government travel guidelines which generally require the joining of loyalty programs (such as frequent flyers) to be met by the individual. Points accrued from such programs through work related travel are not for personal use as it is the responsibility of travellers to effectively manage points accrued as a result of travel or accommodation paid by the Territory and to ensure that these points are redeemed only for further official travel.
