General requirements for Cabinet submissions

Preparing a Cabinet submission

Submissions should be clear and concise and should avoid repetition. They should be no longer than six pages, plus the synopsis and any attachments.

The Cabinet submission template contains instructions on what should be included in submissions.

Some Cabinet submissions have additional requirements including attachments. You can find checklists on the templates page to provide further guidance.

Any questions can be directed to your portfolio Cabinet Advice Policy Officer.
