Briefings to Incoming Ministers


Briefings to Incoming Ministers are documents (known as "BIMs”) that are provided to new Government Ministers on key policies.

This could occur after a general election or a change of Ministerial portfolios and provide an introduction to each portfolio and summarise key areas of policy and policy issues. In some cases, two BIMs are provided, if two government entities are involved in a single portfolio. In the case of CFFC, we provide a BIM to the Minister, and so does the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) as MBIE is responsible for administering Vote Business, Science and Innovation, from which CFFC is funded.

The latest BIMs for all departments are found on the Beehive website.
