Updates and outcomes
We are asking people to share their experience with SACAT to inform an independent review of the tribunal.
What is being reviewed?
The South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) is a state tribunal that helps people in South Australia to resolve issues within specific areas of law, either through agreement at a conference or mediation, or through a decision of the Tribunal at hearing. SACAT also conducts reviews of some Government decisions. It operates across the state of South Australia and is a key part of the state justice system.
SACAT has taken on the role of a number of former tribunals, panels and boards. SACAT will continue to take on additional areas of operation (within administrative and civil law) over coming years.
SACAT strives to be accessible and responsive to user needs, and deals with cases in a large range of areas (or jurisdictions).
SACAT has been in operation for two years, and an independent review is being undertaken to assess whether its performance and services have met expectations and to suggest improvements. The State Government has appointed retired Supreme Court Justice the Hon David Bleby QC to conduct the review.

How can your input help the review?
Sharing your experience and views of SACAT will help to build a picture of whether SACAT has met its goals, to help identify areas for improvement and to set a vision for the role of SACAT in the future.
You can do that be completing a public survey of your SACAT experience. The feedback from this survey will be considered by Mr Bleby in his report.
We want to hear about your experience with SACAT. You can get involved by:
- completing the survey
- joining the discussion
- sending in a submission to Attorney-General'sDepartment@agd.sa.gov.au or GPO Box 434, Adelaide SA 5001
A report will be published in late 2017 and will be available via the YourSAy website.
