On Tuesday afternoon the latest draft of the re-bid program was circulated to all participants who have indicated an interest in being part of the CRC extension.
The Program Taskforce with input from the Participant Taskforce and Board have worked hard to develop the draft program.
To ensure we meet the tight timeline in developing the re-bid we have requested that all participants review the doucments and provide comment/feedback. This will be the last opportunity to get agreement on the future direction of the CRC as the remaining time will need to be dedicated to writing the re-bid proposal. We have requested all feedback/comment by 30 April to enable us to feed all responses into a new draft and then table at the 10 May Participant meeting. If you are a member of a potential participant I encourage you to read the documents and provide comment.
The programs are now titled as:
1. Driving Biosecurity Innovation - through impact and practice change
2. Managing Area Freedom - smarter diagnostics and surveillance tools
3. Securing Market Access - systems approach to product integrity
4. Strengthening Biosecurity Preparedness - pre-border, border and post-border
For each program outcomes, outputs and milestones are now drafted.
