Summary of audited key performance indicators

The 2018-2019 financial year is the second year reporting against the FPC’s 18 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), as ten of the KPIs were newly implemented for the 2017-2018 financial year. The KPIs have a strong focus on sustainability.

The KPIs are designed to measure the FPC’s performance against our responsibilities. This includes a contribution to the achievement of State Government goals, adhering to the requirements of the FMP, and ensuring we meet compliance requirements. The FPC is focused on ensuring sustainable forest management to deliver social and economic benefits to Western Australian communities.

An overview of the 2018-2019 KPI results are provided below. Note that some KPIs are reported for the previous calendar year rather than financial year. These are indicated.
