Under Australian Eggs' funding arrangements with the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, an independent performance review must be undertaken prior to the expiry and renewal of each Funding Contract.
As Australian Eggs' current funding contract concludes in early 2021, the performance review process commenced on 27 March 2020 and will be undertaken over the next five months.
The Review is being conducted by Anwen Lovett Consulting and will include engagement with Australian Eggs' stakeholders.
Any stakeholders that would like to participate in the review, or have queries about it, are invited to contact Anwen Lovett directly on 0418 284 169 or via email.
Australian Eggs' current five-year Strategic Plan concludes in 2021.
The Strategic Plan has a major impact on how levy funds are deployed on behalf of stakeholders as it sets out the goals and key focus areas that inform the development of each Annual Operating Plan.
Australian Eggs is open to feedback from stakeholders on any issue relating to performance. The key issues that emerge from the outset are:
Operating environment - what have been the key changes in the industry and market over the last five years and what impact should that have on Australian Eggs' focus?
Vision - does proactively supporting egg farmers to increase egg consumption and ensure industry sustainability remain relevant?
Structure - are Australian Eggs' goals, focus areas and vision still current, and could they be improved?
Innovation - do Australian Eggs' activities strike the right balance between high and low risk investments, and short and long term focus?
Collaboration - are there more opportunities to collaborate with other participants in the innovation supply chain?
Engagement - do Australian Eggs' stakeholder communication and feedback processes allow sufficient input to make activities commercially relevant?
Impact - are Australian Eggs' evaluation and reporting activities effective in driving transparency and accountability?
As part of the Strategic Plan consultation process, Australian Eggs invites written submissions from all interested stakeholders. Submissions can be made by inserting text in the field below or uploading a document.
Written submissions will be kept confidential by Australian Eggs and will not be shared with other stakeholders, including elected board members. Written submissions will be accepted until 12 June 2020.
