The APS prepares a number responses to formal inquiries, discussion papers, reviews and reports from various external agencies. In addition, formal proposals and submissions are prepared for consideration by government departments.
The extensive APS advocacy activities are supported through representation on influential advisory groups and committees, formal submissions to inquiries and reviews, and government funding for a variety of projects. During the 2014/15 financial year strategic advocacy was facilitated through formal APS representation on a large number of advisory groups and committees.
A number of funded projects support APS advocacy efforts for high standards of training and the contribution of psychology to community wellbeing. In 2014/2015 the APS has received funding from the Australian Government and other entities to undertake a number of projects. The funding enabled the employment of staff to undertake the projects under the supervision of National Office staff and with the guidance of appointed project reference groups.
