Cabinet is made up of Northern Territory Government (NTG) ministers.
They are responsible for areas of government, known as portfolios.
Cabinet’s role is to discuss and decide major policy and financial decisions for the government.
Cabinet usually meets weekly in Darwin. Regular community meetings are also held in other parts of the NT.
Executives and officers from NTG agencies support Cabinet by providing advice to ministers.
Before making decisions, Cabinet consults appropriate agencies for advice.
The chief executive officer of the Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet is the current Cabinet Secretary.
The Cabinet Secretary’s role is to:
- advise the Chief Minister on the flow of Cabinet business
- attend Cabinet meetings and recording its decisions
- approve any changes to consultation or distribution requirements for Cabinet submissions.
