Calendar of meetings#
The CabNet calendar contains all Cabinet, Cabinet committee and Executive Council meeting events within an upcoming year. For those officials who do not have access to CabNet, a schedule of the next week’s meetings is emailed to Minister's Offices by the Cabinet Office every Friday.
The indicative Cabinet and Cabinet committee meeting timetable notice is also available to Minister's Offices and agencies. Contact the Cabinet Office for a copy of the notice.
General advice on Cabinet and committee meetings#
The regular meeting timetable operates when the House of Representatives (the House) is sitting.
When the House is adjourned, only Cabinet and the Executive Council usually meet. The Cabinet Business Committee (CBC) meets only as required in weeks when the House is adjourned. If there is insufficient business for a CBC meeting, any papers submitted for CBC may be considered at Cabinet instead or held over until the next relevant committee meeting.
Meeting times can be altered closer to the time of the meeting, or meetings may be cancelled if there is insufficient business. All CabNet users have access to the CabNet calendar and can view all meeting events. Changes to meeting events are shown in the My Activities notification stream, on the CabNet calendar, and in the email notification digest.
The list of Cabinet committees, their membership and terms of reference, is on the Cabinet Office’s section of the DPMC website.
