Community consultation is an important part of the annual Budget development process. Input from the community is a long established element of the Budget process, and is highly valued by the Government.
All community groups and individuals can make submissions to the 2024-25 Budget community consultation process.
The community consultation process is coordinated by the Department of Treasury and Finance, with submissions considered by the relevant Agencies.
When are submissions due?
Written submissions for consideration as part of the 2024-25 Budget are due to the Department of Treasury and Finance by
30 November 2023. Following the receipt of submissions, these are provided to relevant government agencies for consideration as part of the Budget process.

What should I include in my submission?
There are no mandatory inclusions or specific requirements for submissions.
However, it is recommended that your submission is succinct with the matters requested to be considered by the Government in the Budget process clearly identifiable. This could be achieved through providing a summary at the start of the submission.
The information provided in the body of your submission should provide supporting details, information, and discussion in relation to any recommendations. This will assist readers in gaining a good understanding of why the issue is important to you or your organisation.
Please attach the Community Consultation Submission Cover Sheet with your submission by the due date of 30 November 2023.
