The Dysfunctional Divide
MLA Policy Setting and Policy Delivery
Hopefully the following comments will provide some clarification:
- under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the red meat industry organisational structures and the Commonwealth government, Cattle Council of Australia (CCA), Australian Lot Feeders Association (ALFA) and the Sheepmeat Council of Australia (SCA) are each charged with the responsibility of setting levy expenditure policy for MLA for their sector of the red meat industry, whilst
- MLA’s role is to be the marketing and R&D service provider for CCA, ALFA and SCA and carry out so-called ‘willing partnership’ Joint and Core service functions and R&D forthe Australian Meat Processing Corporation (AMPC) and the live export levy funded corporation, LiveCorp.
