The MPS Directorate of Public Affairs was renamed as the Directorate of Media and Communications (DMC) in 2013-14, when it underwent a significant restructure.  All communications posts are now centralised within the DMC, along with publicity budgets of £2m and recruitment advertising budgets of £1.7m.  The total DMC net revenue budget for 2014/15 is £9.32m, of which £0.77m is CT funded.  The breakdown is shown below.
