    I prefer choice "a" because it focuses on the formality of the announcement.
    "b" focuses on the formality of the decision. Odd.
    "c" is ... odd.

    The adverb 'formally' modifies the verb 'announce'. We therefore need the adjective 'formal' to modify the noun 'announcement'. It's 'a'.

    (a): sounds more acceptable than other two
