What are Cabinet documents?

Cabinet documents include Cabinet submissions, Cabinet notes, and Cabinet agendas.

Cabinet submissions are prepared by state government agencies seeking a decision from Cabinet on a significant policy change, project, reform or appointment.

Cabinet notes, also prepared by state government agencies, provide information for Cabinet to note, where no decision is required.

Cabinet agendas list the Cabinet submissions and Cabinet notes to be discussed at a specific Cabinet meeting.
