  • Edward RC Financial Sustainability Review

    Client: Edward River Council State: NSW The objective of the Financial Sustainability Review was to facilitate sustainable long-term planning and avert potential issues emerging in the future. The project's highlight was its ability to provide the council with a thorough understanding of past performance and a forecast of the Council’s capacity to maintain fiscal capital (access to cash) and maintain infrastructure (assets). The project included an assessment of the asset management maturity and testing the estimated infrastructure backlog and asset maintenance targets. AEC developed strategies and recommendations to the Council to address areas that required improvement to ensure financial sustainability in the long term. The project involved a thorough analysis of the Council's cost of services, capital works planning, asset management approach, risks, and opportunities. This analysis offered a clear and comprehensive picture of the Council's financial position, and identified areas where improvements could be made. The project considered Council's long-term strategic plans and how they align with their financial projections, ensuring integration of financial planning with strategic planning, enabling Council to achieve the Community Strategic Plan and other adopted strategies and plans. The success of the project was highlighted by the appreciation and compliments provided by the Councillors and the Executive Team, and we look forward to monitoring the realisation of the project through implementation of our recommendations.

  • Department of Education QLD

    Client: Department of Education Queensland State: QLD AEC has just been awarded the contract to undertake the Integrated Communication Study on behalf of the QLD Department of Education. The Queensland Department of Education (the Department) has previously undertaken research where the overall objective was to improve employee retention, which closely correlates with employee satisfaction. This research revealed discontent with several areas of internal communications including systems, governance, and processes. The overarching purpose of this Study is to identify common pain points experienced by staff in their internal communications experience. The study will engage with Principals and deputy principals, heads of curriculum, heads of department, and all other leadership roles, school /classroom teachers, school business managers, all school-based non-teaching staff, regional directors and assistant regional directors, and regional and corporate office staff via online survey. The findings from this study will identify which stage(s) of the internal communications process require the most improvement and/or would be the most impactful areas to improve at the Department.

  • Health and Wellbeing QLD

    Client: Health and Wellbeing Queensland State: QLD Health and Wellbeing Queensland (HWQld) is working to increase the accessibility, affordability, desirability and convenience of healthier food and drinks options for Queenslanders in out-of-home (OOH) food environments. To bridge the gap in light of minimal information on the demand for healthier food and drinks options in OOH environments HWQld commissioned a research study to engage with Queensland adults to gain in-depth insights into the values, attitudes, knowledge, behaviours and expectations of food and drink provision in OOH environments. The study engaged with two target audiences including Queensland adults who have child(ren) between the ages of 5 and 12 (Group 1) and those who do not have child(ren) within this age group (Group 2) via online survey methodology (via panel partners). The overarching objective of the study was to understand and demonstrate demand for healthier food and drink options in OOH environments to enable HWQld to identify opportunities and deliver programs in a way that is relevant and develop new programs that fill any gaps and ultimately inform the future direction of key HWQld programs that form part of key marketing messages.
