Data stocktake, analysis and implementation roadmap

An opportunity now exists for the entire live export supply chain to be better connected, linking each segment from the Australian farm through to importing country retail outlets and consumers. Capturing and making available welfare and productivity-related data will enable supply chain participants the option to share information that will inform improved business management decisions. These will contribute to trade sustainability as well as operator viability. Knowledge and awareness of how each link in the supply chain interacts and impacts profitability will create new opportunities to refine production practices and procedures that deliver greater value through the supply chain.

All applications must address the Terms of Reference. Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday 7 May 2021.


Uptake of training and animal health and welfare practices

It is a high priority for the livestock export industry (producers and exporters) to encourage greater uptake of animal health and welfare practices across the industry to reduce risks, increase supply chain productivity and support industry sustainability.

The LEP is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified consultants to identify key animal health and welfare risks or opportunities along the livestock export supply chain that could be mitigated or improved through the provision of training or competency development. Informed by this, the consultant will then develop a training strategy and roll out plan.

All applications must address the Terms of Reference. Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday 21 May 2021.


Improving regulatory efficiency and consistency through standardised export declarations

The livestock export industry is keen to pursue opportunities for standardisation and greater consistency in the meeting of market access requirements to support improvements in business practices, regulatory efficiency, market resilience and potential digitisation of paperwork. This includes the development of unified documentation for declarations required for export, beginning with South East Asian cattle markets.

The LEP is seeking applications from suitably qualified consultants to undertake a review of export documentation, and the associated regulations and regulatory structures for selected major markets, to clarify the regulatory requirements and understand the commercial implementation practices relating to export declarations.

All applications must address the Terms of Reference. Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday 21 May 2021.
