INVITATION TO OFFER - Review factors to successful change in policy and practice in Social Housing for people with complex needs

Queensland Mental Health Commission | Published February 20, 2017  -  Deadline March 17, 2017

The Queensland Mental Health Commission is seeking proposals to engage a consultant to evaluate the key drivers of successful reform in policy and practice in social housing arising from the Social Housing Ordinary Report to inform the Commission’s approach to both planning and delivering future work programs.

It is intended that the final review report will be both academically rigorous and relevant to people who aim to influence government policy and practice.

The evaluation is focused on the Commission’s role and how it played that role including how it used research to develop policy recommendations and contributed to implementing change. It is not an evaluation of the research or the role of the partner agencies per se. Their views will be an important input to the evaluation.

Scope of work

The review, while not limited to the following, should explore such factors as:

  • The environment in which the changes took place
  • The Commission’s approach in developing and supporting the implementation of the Ordinary Report.
  • The processes, both formal and informal, that framed the policy change

It will need to cover the time period from 1 September 2013 to 31 December 2016, commencing with the decision to make a submission to the Parliamentary review until the most recent progress report from the Department of Housing and Public Works, noting that work is continuing.

The research methodology should include:

  • Conducting a limited literature review to provide a basis from which a comparative assessment of any assertions can be made in determining the success of the initiative.
  • Reviewing the project’s processes from inception through to outcome delivery, within the context of the key influencing factors.
  • The analysis should include discussions with key personnel and documentation made available to the review team.

For more information about this opportunity, please consult the ITO Specification Document.

Closing date for questions is 3 March 2017.

Offers must be lodged by 4.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on 17 March 2017.

Cultural management for weed control and maintenance of crop yield

Grains Research and Development Corporation | Published January 9, 2017  -  Deadline March 6, 2017

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is a statutory corporation established under the Primary Industries Research and Development Act 1989. It is subject to accountability and reporting obligations set out in the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. It is responsible for planning, investing in and overseeing research and development, and delivering improvements in production, sustainability and profitability across the Australian grains industry. Herbicides remain the primary method of weed control in cereal crops because they are very cost effective, hence why farmers are reluctant to adopt integrated weed management (IWM) until they have a serious herbicide resistance problem. When resistance exists, farmers generally change to other modes of herbicide action (including herbicide-resistant crops); however, when resistance to multiple modes of action exists, farmers are forced to adopt more radical nonchemical or cultural control options. Crop competition is widely accepted as an important tactic for suppressing weed growth and maintaining crop yield. Agronomic choices influence crop competition, including crop species and cultivar, row spacing, crop density and row orientation. All these tactics have been shown to impact on the control of in-crop weeds. For wheat, while cultural factors such as row spacing, seeding rate, row orientation, nutrient placement, time of sowing and swathing/time of harvest are known to contribute to effective weed management, these management tactics have not been studied extensively in factorial combinations in different environments to demonstrate their relative contributions in a farming system. While significant effort has been focused on competitive agronomy in wheat and other cereals, much less effort has gone into crops such as canola. To advance this research, it is expected that more data will be needed on existing genetic variability of competitive ability in canola x agronomic region x agronomic practice. Using a limited number of diverse canola genotypes validation data could be collected on the existing genetic variability of competitive ability x agronomic region x agronomic practice. Adopting a holistic systems approach should deliver more practical information to growers on likely outcomes of specific agronomic IWM strategies. Growers can then make informed investment decisions. By 2025, a 20% increase in growers effectively using cultural weed management tools which reduce current economic losses and minimise control costs based on the 2016 GRDC Farm Practices Survey. This GRDC investment is to: 1. By 15 December 2017, a written report delivered to GRDC proposing the planned experimentation on weed competitive cultural management practices using statistically valid field trial designs including proposed target weed species. The report will include: Trial designs developed in consultation with SAGI. Detail including at least 4 crops and 5 trials, with at least 2 crop competition factors per trial in each region, per year, for 5 years addressing the major knowledge gaps as specified in Table 1 of the Supporting Documentation. Justification for crop competition factors and crops to be studied. Proposed methodology including measuring input costs, impacts on weeds, weed seedbank and crop yields. Local practice including herbicide use will be required as a control treatment. Integration of other non-herbicide management tactics is desirable (e.g. harvest weed seed management), however herbicide integration is to be used where relevant. The report will be submitted to the GRDC for approval prior to any further work occurring. 2. Undertake and report on regionally specific cultural management practice field trials, with first delivery by 15 December 2018 and completion by June 2022, which optimises weed competitive agronomic management tactics to manage at least 2 major weeds species (in at least 4 crops and 5 trials with at least 2 crop competition factors per trial in each region per year for 5 years) according to trial designs developed in Output 1 and approved by GRDC. Delivery of details of the impact on at least 2 major weeds and crop yield of at least 2 crop competition factors in 4 crops per region is expected by January 2020. At least 5 trials per region per year with a trial in each subregion. 3. By 15 December annually, report trial results into the Online Farm Trials database ( 4. In conjunction with GRDC, develop key messages for growers, agronomists and consultants to facilitate adoption of the management tactics developed in Output 2, to encourage crop sustainability; commencing in March 2020 and completed by June 2022. 5. By 2022, collation and evaluation of all trial results on competitive tactics for crops from each region to update the Integrated Weed Management Manual.
