Regulatory Quality and Treasury - Introductory Briefing [Briefing to the Incoming Minister for Regulatory Reform 2011]

Supporting the Minister of Finance and Minister for Regulatory Reform

11. There will be a number of practical issues to be resolved regarding how Ministers and their offices work together, how Treasury supports them, and interactions between the Regulatory Reform and Small Business portfolios. The Small Business portfolio will be supported by MED. Issues to be resolved include:

  • the handling of Ministerial correspondence, Parliamentary Questions and media inquiries
  • commissioning Treasury advice and submitting cabinet papers on regulatory quality
  • addressing compliance of cabinet papers with RIA requirements
  • engaging with the New Zealand Productivity Commission, and
  • resourcing within Vote: Finance.

12. These issues will need to be worked through between your office and the office of the Minister of Finance. Treasury will support that process as required.
