Now that the Inquiry has ended, your submission (including supporting documents) is held securely by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Your submission was only accessed by the Inquiry team for analysis, and was drawn on in the formation of the Inquiry’s reports.

Where submissions were made by an individual, confidentiality for all or part of the submission (including documents submitted to the Inquiry) could be requested. This information will not be made publicly available.

The content of submissions may be publicly released by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, such as in response to an Official Information Act request. Should this occur, any personal or identifying information will be removed, along with any other material you identified and that which the Inquiry team deemed should be withheld, such as confidential or sensitive information.

Groups/organisations making submissions could request confidentiality for part/s of their submissions, and could provide redacted versions.  Where the request has been agreed, this information will not be made publicly available.       

You can choose to share or publicly release your own submission, the content of which you are responsible for.

More information about handling of your submission is available here [PDF, 582 KB](external link).
