Review of LiveCorp's Key Performance Indicators
Project Code:  W.LIV.0134

Year Published: 2009

LiveCorp is the marketing and research body for the livestock export industry. It works jointly with MLA through the Live Export Program (LEP) to develop and sustain a competitive livestock export industry. It also works independently of the LEP to provide services and programs to exporter members and other industry stakeholders to enhance the sustainability and competitive positioning of Australia's livestock export industry. Its primary role is, therefore, a provider of collective services to the industry.

During 2008-09 LiveCorp and MLA evaluated the impact of the livestock export programs. This evaluation involved a review of LiveCorp's Key Performance indicators (KPIs) and the subsequent development of a KPI monitoring and evaluation framework for which a baseline was taken (and historical baselines determined as needed).
