Select Committee on Estimates 2017-2018

Survey of Community and Industry Groups on the ACT Budget 2017-2018

Every year the Select Committee on Estimates seeks the views of community and industry representative groups on the ACT Budget.

The ACT Government will present the 2017-2018 Budget in the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday 6 June 2017. Following this, the Budget papers will be available on the Treasury website at:

The Committee is interested to hear issues of interest and concern to community and industry groups relating to the 2017-18 ACT Budget and invites you to contribute to the inquiry.

This process can be initiated by completing the survey. Completed surveys should be returned to the Secretariat no later than 3.00pm on Friday 9 June 2017. Unfortunately extensions beyond this time cannot be granted.

The Committee will be holding public hearings for community and industry groups on Friday 16 June 2017. The Committee will consider completed survey forms and extend invitations to groups which, in its view, would contribute the most value to the program of public hearings.  Please indicate in the final question of the survey if you are interested in appearing before the Committee at the public hearing.

If you would like any further information please contact the Secretariat, on 620 50435. Please feel free to pass this survey information on to any other organisation you feel may be interested in contributing.
