- 7 SECRETARIAT The role of the Secretariat of the Department is to deal with projects related to the wide range of issues which come to the Chief Minister as Head of Government but which do not readily fall within the ambit of a particular Department or Authority, or where co-ordination of action by several Departments or Authorities is necessary. During 1986/87 the Secretariat has co-ordinated the Northern Territory Government's involvement with the Australian Bicentennial Council's Commemorative Program and has provided administrative support to the Remuneration Tribunal. The Secretariat has an important role in co-ordinating the Northern Territory's interests in defence matters with the Commonwealth Government. It participates in the joint consultative arrangements established for the development of the Tindal RAAF Base. The Unit will be involved in similar consultative arrangements which have been established for the relocation of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment to Darwin. The Secretariat also undertakes the preparation of major submissions on a broad range of topics where they relate to Northern Territory interests, particularly in relation to Commonwealth Government enquiries undertaken by various Standing Committees.
