Daily Nation Pg: 32 -Single Agency Set To Handle State Adverts

The Government has moved to the final stage of creating a
centralised advertising agency to handle all its media dealings.
Effective 1st July, 2015 all ministries, state corporations and
universities will do media booking through the Ministry of Information,
Communication and Technology, Government Advertising Agency under the
Department of Public Communications.

Last year, ICT Cabinet Secretary
Fred Matiang’i ordered ministries and state agencies to conduct their
advertising campaigns electronically to cut expenditure on communication
services. He said the move which had been approved by the Cabinet, would
cut government expenditure from Sh2.8 billion a year to about Sh1 billion.
