The Green Army Service Provider Performance Framework is a collection of data from Service Providers that the Department used to ensure compliance with program requirements.
Service Providers delivered the program on the ground, and were responsible for recruiting participants and team supervisors, managing work health and safety, providing training, paying allowances, and overseeing project management.
The purpose of the Performance Framework is to ensure consistent or improved performance of Service Providers and provide a comparative summary of Service Provider performance in the delivery of the Green Army Program against the following four strategic objectives:
Strategic Objective 1: Environmental Conservation
Support the delivery of enduring environment and heritage conservation outcomes at the local, regional and national level.
Strategic Objective 2: Community Engagement
Work cooperatively with community groups and help raise awareness of environment and heritage values in the community.
Strategic Objective 3: Green Army Participation
Engage and deploy young Australians to participate in Green Army Teams, having the highest regard for Participant safety, wellbeing, personal need and development.
Strategic Objective 4: Experience, Skills and Training
Provide Participants with opportunities to undertake training recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework in a range of areas which increase their skills and qualifications.
The Green Army Service Provider Performance Framework was designed to provide an incentive for Service Providers to maintain high levels of performance, primarily through fostering competition and increasing the level of external scrutiny of their performance data.
Service Provider performance was measured against data that the Department already collected, or was readily available. There was no data for the first two quarters of 2014-15 as no projects were completed. Data was captured from January 2015 to March 2018. Results are separated by Service Provider and then compared.
