Appendix A: Country Fire Authority Q3 Progress Update

CFA’s Year Three Outcomes Framework uses a quarterly baseline which calculates the average result for Q3 over a specified time period (1, 2, 3 or 5 years). CFA reports the use of baseline data in lieu of specified targets for many measures. CFA’s target therefore is to ‘increase’ or ‘decrease’ (as appropriate) and improve performance with consideration to baseline data.

CFA’s Year Three Outcomes Framework was first reported in Q2 FY 2022-23. The CFA Year Three Outcomes Framework has revised some indicator baselines and business rules, and this quarter FSIM have reported historical data trends and baselines only where business rules from the CFA Year Three Outcomes Framework remain consistent with the CFA Year Two Outcomes Framework.

CFA categorises Year Three Outcomes Framework indicators into four domains:

  1. strong relationships to keep communities safe
  2. a responsive and innovative volunteer service
  3. high performing volunteer and paid workforce
  4. a continuous improvement culture.
