Output funding and reporting

The Outputs and Performance Measures Catalogue (Version 1, 1 July 2015) includes outputs, counting rules and examples for reporting on outputs.  It also includes outcome measures, throughputs, demographic data and other measures.  Counting rules and examples for these measures are also in the catalogue.

Output funding

In simple terms, an output is goods or services delivered to someone else which generates a desired outcome. Service providers transform resources (inputs) into services (outputs) and the impact of these outputs on individuals, groups and the community are the outcomes of the service. Funding for output-based service provision is focussed on the service provided (output) to the service user. The funding is allocated to produce the output.

For more information

For more information on output-based funding all non-government organisations should contact their Community Service Officer.
