Abstract

The Cabinet Handbook outlines the underlying principles of Cabinet, government and general expectations for Cabinet business and meetings, with detailed requirements and procedures. The Handbook is designed as a resource for Ministers, ministerial staff and public officials, involved in the development and progression of Cabinet business. A well-functioning Cabinet requires high-quality proposals and documents, robust processes for the development of Cabinet proposals, and appropriate levels of security. Ministers and officials are expected to take particular care with the quality of Submissions and Memoranda brought forward to Cabinet and its Sub-Committees, and timelines for the lodgement of Cabinet documents are met. Effective Cabinet confidentiality requires strict observance of the security requirements for Cabinet documents by Ministers, their staff and Northern Territory Government officers.
