Make a submission

Submissions play an important role in shaping the nature and focus of our inquiries. We invite the public, interested parties and experts, to have a say on the issues we raise. Submissions are published on this website to maintain transparency.

We currently welcome submissions on the questions posed in the issues paper for our immigration inquiry and in the consultation paper for our inquiry into persistent disadvantage. 

How to make a submission

Make a submission
This is the starting point for contributing to our inquiries. A submission can be a letter on a single issue or a more substantial document covering a range of issues. Please provide relevant facts, figures, data, examples and documentation to support your views. After receipt, submissions are published on our website to maintain transparency.

Submissions can be made online below (please do not send a scanned document) or via post to New Zealand Productivity Commission, PO Box 8036, The Terrace, Wellington 6143

We value every submission
Every submission is reviewed by the inquiry team. Where relevant, information and evidence in submissions (such as facts, figures, data or examples) may be referred to, or used, in our inquiry reports.

Submission content
The Commission may choose not to publish a submission in part or in full if we consider, in our sole judgment, that the content is inappropriate for any reason (such as being defamatory) – or risks being seen by others as inappropriate. In making such judgments, we may consult with the submitter, including to seek agreement to submission content being amended for publication, but the Commission reserves the right to make whatever decisions we see fit.

‘In confidence’ material can be accepted only under special circumstances. Please contact before submitting this material or for any other queries.
