Independent Review of Performance

In December 2017, following a competitive tender process, GHD was contracted to carry out the four-yearly Independent Review of Performance (review) on Hort Innovation.

The review was a requirement under the company’s Statutory Funding Agreement (SFA) with the Australian Government, and also an opportunity to gain important feedback on progress and delivery over the four years since the incorporation of Hort Innovation.

The initiatives outlined in the Company Response to the review formed an ongoing program of work for Hort Innovation and helped to inform the beginning of negotiations around the next SFA between the Australian Government and Hort Innovation, in the continued effort to support the productivity, profitability, and competitiveness of Australian horticulture.

The review, the initiatial Company Response, and a 2019 update on the response and implementation plan can be downloaded below.
