The 2018 Victorian State Election is set to be held on Saturday 24 November 2018. The caretaker period is set to begin at 6pm on Tuesday 30 October 2018.
The caretaker period is governed by the Guidelines on the Caretaker Conventions (‘the caretaker conventions’), which were issued by the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) on 14 May 2018 and can be found on DPC’s website.
Section 2.70 of the caretaker conventions notes that during the caretaker period, government and non-government parties may seek DTF to undertake a costing of their own policies.
To provide more information and guidance to parties about this process, DTF has prepared the following document: Guidelines for managing requests from a political party for costing of its own policies (the Guidelines).
Where a party requests DTF to undertake a costing of its own policies, DTF will use this webpage to publicly release party costing requests and associated DTF costings, consistent with the process and timelines outlined in the Guidelines.
