This publication is part of the CabGuide.

A range of data on actions undertaken in CabNet and on Cabinet and Cabinet committee submissions is available in CabNet as a series of reports which can be accessed by CabNet organisation administrators. 

The reports are designed to facilitate agency’s administration of user access and management of Cabinet and Cabinet committee submissions.

These reports are generated on a scheduled basis.

The reports are generated as .csv files which can be downloaded and opened in Microsoft Excel.

Agencies can compile and interrogate the data contained in the reports using Excel tools (such as pivot tables) to analyse data or identify patterns over time.

CabNet reports are not Cabinet material and therefore can be saved into agency document management systems.
