THE wool industry is being urged to contribute to the independent review of Australian Wool Innovation before submissions close on May 4.
EY was appointed to conduct the review, which was announced by the federal government on March 21.
Led by EY federal government lead partner Andrew Metcalfe AO, the review is governed by the terms of reference outlined by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
“The AWI independent performance review is well underway and there have been many stakeholder meetings and teleconferences, alongside extensive phone research including appropriate sampling across all states and territories,” Mr Metcalfe said.
“The review will look at AWI’s performance and governance against its stated objectives. It’s also about looking to the future, and enabling wool growers and stakeholders to contribute to the future direction of AWI.”
Mr Metcalfe says the review will consider AWI’s delivery upon core objectives including research, development, extension and marketing services to woolgrowers, and other matters of public interest.
“The review is an opportunity to raise issues and concerns. The sooner people lodge their submissions, the more time we have to carefully consider each submission,” he said.
“We strongly encourage those with a passion for Australia’s wool industry to act quickly and have their say.”
EY is accepting submissions via the webpage: go.srnet.com.au/AWIReview.
