Dairy Australia Performance
Dairy Australia's Performance Report is a new approach to provide detailed information on the organisation's range of initiatives and investments on behalf of levy payers. It is an accompanying document to Dairy Australia's Annual Report 2018–19.
The report is presented for the interest of farmer levy payers and a range of industry and government stakeholders, notably those who partner with Dairy Australia in major project investments to support the productivity, profitability and sustainability of dairy farming in Australia.
In 2018–19 (FY19), Dairy Australia invested $58 million across 13 key program areas defined in its Strategic Plan (for the period FY17 to FY20) and FY19 Annual Operating Plan. This report provides an overview of Dairy Australia's performance across these programs and is based on its Evaluation Framework introduced in 2018. It is not an exhaustive list of all key metrics, but a compilation of some of the significant milestones and achievements in FY19.
Key group-level performance metrics are also outlined across different aspects of the organisation including financial, people, stakeholder satisfaction, technology and infrastructure and risk management.
Dairy Australia's Evaluation Framework covers the context and rationale for evaluating its planned investment and describes activity and proposed output from this framework. This is used as the basis for the Dairy Australia strategy development and Strategic Plan.
The purpose of the Evaluation Framework is to outline the approach Dairy Australia will take when reviewing the business and projects across the project lifecycle. Metrics captured at a group and stakeholder level are used to gauge the effectiveness and success of our programs. This Evaluation Framework captures group, stakeholder and project metrics to ensure programs conducted by Dairy Australia are linked and aligned to the Strategic Plan and returns to levy payers are clear and transparent.
