Submissions to the Tribunal

All submissions received by the Tribunal will be made available on this website unless the author is able to demonstrate that the submission would not be releasable under freedom of information laws.

Parties making submissions have the opportunity to indicate that a submission should not be publicised.  You should be aware, however, that the Remuneration Tribunal is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (the Act).

You may consider a submission or part of a submission should not be publicised because it would:

  • be an unreasonable disclosure of personal information about any person (section 41 of the Act); or
  • be a breach of confidence (section 45 of the Act); or
  • be an exempt document under the Act.

In these circumstances, when lodging a submission mark the document and indicate which part of the submission you consider should not be released.  To do this you should:

  • indicate why the document or part of the document should not be released in accordance with the Act; and
  • indicate that the material is being provided to the Remuneration Tribunal "in confidence" and clearly mark those parts of the document so that the Remuneration Tribunal can take this into account, if requests for access are made.

If a request is received under the Act for the release of documents or parts of documents which you have marked "in confidence", you will be consulted prior to a decision being made on access. Even if documents are marked "in confidence" they may be released having regard to the public interest and the possibility of review, including by the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the courts.

The Act may be viewed in full on the ACT Government Legislation Register at the following link: www.legislation.act.gov.au img-icn-extlink.
