    5.0 Preparation of submissions to Cabinet and Cabinet Committees

    Information being considered at Cabinet level must be of the highest standard to aid decision-making.

    The contents of a Cabinet submission should be concise and written in plain English.

    Submissions must be presented on the templates provided at the Appendices.

    Where two or more Ministers share substantial responsibility for a particular matter, it is appropriate for a joint submission to be presented to Cabinet. In cases where many Ministers have an interest in the subject matter, it is preferable for responsibility to be allocated to key Ministers to oversee development of, and sign, the submission and for the interests of the others to be taken into account by their being consulted, in a timely and effective manner, in the preparation of the submission.
