Measuring Key Performance Indicators of the Livestock Export Program

Project Code:  W.LIV.0135

Year Published: 2005

This report supplements the Review of LiveCorp's Key Performance Indicators (W.LIV.0134). The purpose of the review of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) was to come up with a relatively small number of specific and focused KPIs critical to the strategic and operational performance of the joint LiveCorp/Meat & Livestock Australia's Livestock Export Program (LEP) during the life of its Strategic Plan and Annual Operating Plans (AOPs).

The review came up with 15 KPIs across the four programs of:

1. Livestock management and animal welfare

  • On-going improvements to handling and transport
  • Increasing understanding and capacity by management and staff of exporters, shippers and in-market interests
  • On-going improvements in facilities and infrastructure
  • Demonstrated capacity to respond to incidents 

2. Market Access and development

  • Maintenance and building of existing markets, improving conditions and efficiency of access and improving understanding of market requirements
  • Support for additional market options and increasing industry's ability to have ready access to markets.
  • Improved capacity for industry to manage in-market operational issues 

3. Supply chain

  • Increased efficiency in transport and handling from farm to in-market
  • On-going improvements in skills and capacity of the supply-chain workforce
  • Improved capacity to meet market requirements
  • Reduced cost of regulatory requirements 

4. Communications and stakeholder relationships

  • Increased stakeholder endorsement of the industry (by industry, the Australian community and the Australian Government)
  • Enhanced perceptions by the scientific community of the technical capacity of industry
  • Stakeholders have confidence in technical advice and analysis undertaken by the Live Export program
  • Demonstrated industry unity through membership and support for LiveCorp and the LEP.
