Schedule of likely consultations
Here is our indicative stakeholder consultation schedule. Please note these dates may change due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.
Our stakeholder engagement principles
The following principles underpin our engagement with our stakeholders:
Understand before acting
Build and maintain relationships with key stakeholders through regular ‘check-in’ discussions.
Involve before deciding
All stakeholders impacted by a reform should be consulted to develop policy and, where possible, resolve differences before public comment is sought.
Discuss before implementing
Use public consultation to seek wider public views on issues which could not be resolved during the policy development process.
Share before announcing
Ensure there are ‘no surprises’. Generally, stakeholders should not learn of key policy decisions and statements through the media or other channels.
