    4.10 Cabinet Agenda

    The Cabinet agenda is determined by the Premier with the order of business being dealt with in the following sequence:

    • apologies;
    • conflicts of interest;
    • confirmation of Collective Minutes from the previous meeting;
    • Cabinet submissions;
    • oral submissions;
    • matters to note;
    • proactive release of Cabinet material;
    • proposed Executive Council Minutes;
    • Ministers attending Executive Council; and
    • time and date of next meeting.

    On Monday afternoon, the Premier will consider proposed submissions and determine which should proceed to Cabinet at the next meeting. If approved for inclusion they are compiled into a Cabinet business list. Similarly, should the Premier approve subsequent "late" submissions, they are added progressively to the business list.

    All items for "matters to note" must be received at Cabinet Services by 10am on the Thursday before Cabinet. Each portfolio is limited to submit no more than three matters using the approved template (refer Chapter 4.17). These matters should all be shown on a single page. The document must be signed off and approved by the submitting agency's portfolio Minister.

    The agenda and business list are included in the Cabinet submission folders which are circulated to Ministers and Chief Executive Officers.
