Submission Writing Guide: General Tips 


Why Write a Submission?

Government agencies often invite submissions from the public to collect views and to gauge community opinion on new or existing government policies or proposals, and these responses help shape the decisions of Government. It is important that a diverse range of people and groups with different perspectives
and experiences are heard, so that the government department doing the review receives adequate representation and is better informed about how the law affects people from across the community.
