CPC Standard Production Agreement
A standard agreement for commercial production, developed in consultation with The Communications Council. This agreement is intended to provide a framework for agencies and production companies to employ best practice principles. While each project operates within different parameters, standardising the process clarifies responsibilities and creates better efficiencies. It does not remove the need for negotiation and should act as a guide for parties to operate within the spirit of sustainable business partnerships.

The objectives are focussed on creating deeper and more meaningful connections between brands and their audiences, gaining efficiencies, better managing complexity of media, as well as better asset management.
- A key learning throughout the process has been that 'how' the procurement process is managed is fundamental to achieving mutually beneficial outcomes. Marketing leaders are critical in being involved. Likewise, the CMO learning has been that working with agencies directly is critical to a consultative and more constructive process.
- Our shared objective with clients and agencies is to find effective and sustainable solutions for business issues through consultation and being proactive.
