Urban National Performance Report Framework Review

In July 2018 the Bureau of Meteorology, Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, Water Services Association of Australia and jurisdictional members of the NPR Roundtable Group signed an agreement to undertake a review of the National Performance Reporting framework.

Objectives of the review are:

  1. Secure ongoing cross-jurisdictional support National Performance Reporting as per Clause 75 of the NWI agreement.
  2. Ensure that the set of data collected through the Framework meets the current and future needs of the urban water sector for regulation, benchmarking, planning, and policy development.
  3. Deliver on relevant recommendations of the Productivity Commission's Inquiry Report on National Water Reform.
  4. Refresh the form and format of reporting carried out under the Framework, utilising online reporting and dashboards to meet the needs of key users and stakeholders.


The Bureau of Meteorology have engaged Aither Consulting to undertake the review.

Widespread consultation is informing recommendations to revitalise the existing National Performance Reporting framework. The review will ensure the framework satisfies current and future needs of the urban water sector. The framework review will be completed by June 30th 2019.
