APA style does not require the inclusion of the government jurisdiction / level in the reference – such as the Australian Government or the name of the state government (University of Newcastle, 2018) Use only the department, unit or agency name, e.g. 'Australian Government Department of Education and Training' would only use 'Department of Education and Training'. Note that if the name of the state is part of the department name – e.g. Queensland Health – then it should be included.
