Corporate and operational plans

As an independent statutory authority, the APVMA is required to conduct rigorous corporate planning and reporting. Our planning and reporting requirements are set out in the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act 1992.

Our central planning document is the APVMA corporate plan, which defines the principal objectives of the APVMA and gives a broad outline of the strategies devised to achieve these objectives. The corporate plan aligns with the APVMA Regulator Performance Framework, which outlines our key performance measures.

In addition, each year we develop an operational plan that sets out the actions needed to achieve the objectives in the corporate plan. We measure our operational effectiveness annually through the performance indicators in the operational plan and the Portfolio Budget Statement (PBS).
