Public Submissions Policy

The Tasmanian Government is committed to ensuring that public consultation processes are open and transparent and that departments apply a consistent approach to the publication of submissions. This commitment reflects community expectations for having access to information that informs Government decision-making on major policy matters.

From 1 January 2018, the Tasmanian Government requires that all Government departments routinely publish on websites all written submissions made in response to broad public consultation on major policy matters.

The approved Guideline “Publication of submissions received by Tasmanian Government Departments in response to consultation on major policy matters”, will assist departments to meet the policy objective that all departments routinely publish on their websites all public submissions provided in response to broad public consultation processes on major policy matters.

A “Have your Say” template has also been approved which can be used by departments for all requests for submissions in response to public consultation on major policy matters.  This template can be modified to suit the department’s particular requirements.

The default position is the publication of all submissions. Exceptions only exist when it is not in the public interest to release the information: for example, to protect personal and other sensitive information (including that of a commercial nature) or where the submitter has requested that the submission be treated as confidential.
