Policy documents guide our decisions, actions and procedures. The Department makes available on request any of its policies that affect or are likely to affect members of the public.
Our policies are split into internal policies, which are those that guide our staff on how to work and behave, and external policies, which are those that have a direct impact on the work of other organisations or individuals.
From time to time, documents relating to the Department are tabled in Parliament. Copies of these tabled documents, which include our annual report, are also made available.
This section also includes information about internal measures in response to the introduction of the Lobbying of Government Officials Act 2011.
