Measuring our performance
Find out how MPI sets its objectives and reports on its performance.
Assessing performance against outcomes
Our 4 long-term outcomes are supported by 7 medium-term focus areas and will be measured by a number of key indicators. Our Strategic Intentions publication sets out our objectives, while the Annual Report has information about our progress.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has also taken part in a review, using the performance improvement framework (PIF) managed through the State Services Commission. This government initiative is designed to help agencies identify their strengths and areas for improvement.
Strategic intentions (formally known as statements of intent) sets out MPI's medium-term strategy and demonstrates how MPI plans to deliver the shifts in performance required to be an exemplary organisation.

Performance Improvement Framework (PIF) Review
MPI was assessed through the PIF process in late 2015. Based on the PIF review MPI has identified 4 focus areas:
- Continue developing MPI's growth programme and improving the initiatives already underway
- Lead within Government, with the primary industries and across communities
- Increase our focus on customers.
- Embed the internal conditions for outstanding performance
A panel of independent reviewers assessed the current state of MPI in late 2012, and considered how well it is placed to deal with the opportunities and challenges faced over the medium-term. The reviewers noted 4 'future state' enhancements - managing and developing MPI’s people, delivering on our export goal, MPI’s leadership role, and systems management. The review was managed by the State Services Commission.
