    3.0 Procedures

    It is critical there is a high degree of rigour in Cabinet procedure to ensure the quality of material presented to Cabinet and to ensure Cabinet members have sufficient time to properly consider complex matters coming before Cabinet.

    The Cabinet procedures ensure:

    • Cabinet proposals are based upon a coordinated approach across government, accord with government policy, and that Cabinet members are informed so that high quality Cabinet deliberations can occur
    • Cabinet business is administered in a coordinated, systematic and planned manner that facilitates effective and efficient Cabinet functioning:
    • a regular Cabinet business cycle is clearly understood and able to be met by portfolios
    • a high level of security for Cabinet information from the present and past governments.

    The Premier may amend or vary these procedures in accordance with the changing needs of Cabinet or in relation to the merits of a particular emergent issue.
