(3) In 2008, the ACT Government's contribution to CAM's total income was 31.5%. The Australia Council for the Arts contribution was 38%, sponsorship 11.5%, membership 9%, services 8%, and interest was 2%.

(4) In 2008, it is understood that CAM employed two full time staff members in the roles of Director and Office Manager.

(5) In accordance with its Deed of Grant, CAM's performance indicators were defined in its 2004-2007 Business Plan. The Plan identified seven key areas and these were: communications, promotion, cooperative marketing, events, professional development, members' services and advocacy.

(6) It is was not evident through the 2007 acquittal that Canberra Arts Marketing was achieving its core vision of leading and excelling in collaborative marketing services and advocacy for the arts of Canberra and Region. The 2007 Acquittal Assessment of the organisation's performance indicators noted that the organisation's achievements had been described in qualitative terms and without analysis.

(7) This was not measured and is therefore unknown.

(8) Since 2008, the ACT Government has contributed $138,600 to the Australia Business Arts Foundation ACT Office to provide professional development services for the ACT Arts Sector, including for marketing. In addition, funding has been provided to ACT Key Arts Organisations to support increases to staff wages and hours, including to assist with marketing.

(9) The ACT Government ceased funding CAM after its application to the ACT Arts Fund's Key Arts Organisation category was not successful. In 2008, the Australia Council for the Arts no longer saw the co-operative marketing model as a priority funding area. The Australia Council for the Arts advised that it would no longer fund CAM beyond 2008. This would require the Territory to be the principal funder. As a membership based organisation, CAM only attracted 9% of its funds base from

membership and as this was not anticipated to increase to compensate the Australia Council for the Arts support, the organisation was financially unviable. The ACT Cultural Council assessment found that the CAM application did not strongly address the Key Arts Organisation funding assessment criteria.
