About R&D reporting
MLA reports on all completed and terminated R&D projects that have been funded by any combination of producer/processor levies, voluntary contributions via the MLA Donor Company and Commonwealth funds. Projects where no funds were spent are not included.
All MLA R&D projects are reported via an online summary, which may in turn be linked to one or more detailed reports.
For each summary, the following project information is displayed:
- report title, if applicable
- project start and end date
- primary region that the project outcomes relate to
- primary species that the project outcomes relate to
- date published (the date the report was uploaded or available from MLA’s web site)
- primary vendor.
R&D funds for a project are managed by MLA via contract codes. A project may include multiple contracts where projects are carried out in stages, or an on-going project or program is funded by annual contracts.
