Consultation

The Victoria Grants Commission undertakes consultation with councils and other interested parties in regards to its methodology and application of data. A number of forums are provided annually by the Commission for communication of its allocation methodology, thereby making opportunities available for councils to provide input into the annual grants determination process, as well as for the Commission to listen and respond to councils' issues and concerns.

The Commission also holds a number of meetings with individual councils each year. The purpose of these meetings is to provide councils with a detailed overview of the Commission's role and methodology, and how the grant outcomes are determined. The meetings enable the Commission to gain a greater understanding of the issues facing individual councils.

In 2015-16, the Commission visited a total of 17 councils on an individual basis and held 5 regional information sessions throughout Victoria.

Submissions

As part of the consultation process each year, the Commission gives councils the opportunity to make written submissions about next year's allocations.

All submissions received in relation to the next allocations have been published here in order to allow all councils access to the full range of issues put before the commission for consideration. The views presented in these submissions provide valuable input on aspects of both the general purpose and local roads grant allocation methodologies, including the construction and application of the cost adjustors and cost modifiers used to reflect the local characteristics of individual councils.

The Commission received submissions from 4 councils for the 2016-17 allocation:
