The Department of Treasury and Finance periodically becomes involved in publicly consulting on significant policy strategies.

When conducting public consultation, the department prepares either an issues paper or a green paper which outlines the issues and proposed strategies for solutions and seeks the views of the community.

The consultation period typically lasts for six weeks, but may vary depending on the issues and urgency for resolution.

The Government of South Australia gives consideration to the public submissions received prior to making a decision.

Details regarding the process for submitting comments are generally included in the respective public consultation papers.
