National Service Delivery and Funding Program1

Description
Implement a range of changes to deliver benefits to industry, including reduced administration burden and costs, without reducing safety outcomes.

Status
Minor issues, but recoverable

Summary
2016 has seen the development of the National System Target Operating Model, and a supporting Service Delivery and Resourcing Plan. Individual transition and communication plans have been developed in consultation with each jurisdiction, and are being implemented to support transition of services to the Commonwealth. A risk analysis framework has also been developed to underpin compliance, and to provide assurance in relation to automation of targeted certification services. Delays have been experienced due to pending policy decisions and finalisation of IT requirements, both of which should be resolved when contracted vendors are on board.

1 Now known as National System Transition Program

Deregulation Agenda Program

Description
Identify ways to reduce the regulatory burden to industry and the community.

Status
On track

Summary
We completed regulatory changes that will result in total estimated annual regulatory savings of $346,770. Additional regulatory change proposals have been identified, some of which are being progressed, that are expected to result in further reduction of regulatory burden on industry and the community.

National Maritime Safety and Environment Plan

Description
Develop and implement a comprehensive and cohesive plan for preventative and response measures for shipping around Australia’s coast, including new and enhanced routeing measures where appropriate

Status
On track

Summary
The draft plan, which is currently under internal review, profiles and forecasts shipping activity around Australia’s coastline over the next 10 years, including ongoing and emerging challenges and proposed policy responses. The AMSA Advisory Committee and other Australian Government agencies will be given an opportunity to review the draft plan prior to submission to the office of the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport before the end of 2016.

Integrated Operations (now known as Joint Operations)

Description
Integrated Operations (now known as Joint Operations)

Status
On track

Summary
We provide operational response services in the areas of: search and rescue, medical evacuation, marine pollution, and ship safety. Joint Operations is an initiative aimed at identifying efficiencies in the use of our operational response resources, including centralised coordination of 24/7 response operations.

Over the last year we have been scoping possible inclusions and identifying potential business benefits. This work has already led to the establishment of a more proactive approach to monitoring and mitigation of risks, and improved operational readiness. Joint Operations will be a central pillar in ensuring a robust response capability for the Australian community

Australian Vessel Monitoring and Advisory Service (AVMAS) Program

Description
Integrate existing data and new tracking and monitoring capability to reduce the risk of shipping incidents around the Australian coast

Status
On track

Summary
This program is focused on the development of an Auto Alerts decision support capability focused on monitoring and compliance. Application has been identified in the area of levy management through an Australian ports vessel arrival alert system that will draw data from the Automatic Identification System to alert us, and other approved entities, of vessel arrivals. In addition, a Drift Detection system is currently being trialled and if successful will facilitate early warning of vessels that may be drifting in areas of concern.

Phase One of the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Exchange project is evaluating the viability of information exchange between us and port authorities relating to vessel deficiencies and vessels that have been detained, to promote efficiencies and safety within port environments. An integrated information capability was released in March 2016 which draws data from a range of internal and external sources, including the Bureau of Meteorology, to provide a more comprehensive graphical display to better support monitoring and response.

Feedback from initial users and key stakeholders will be used to further develop these systems, refine functionality and expand the range of information available.
