Operations and Policy Cabinet Committee
Ops reviews policy, legislation and regulation not reviewed by Agenda Priorities to assess the quality of the proposed policy and process (e.g. has an appropriate consultation been conducted?). OPs may route items to a Ministerial Group or Regional Caucus Committee for discussion and recommendation. OPs may also recommend to Cabinet that the item be discussed by a Standing Legislature Policy Committee. Approved Cabinet policy may return to OPs for implementation discussions.
