National Partnership Agreement on Essential Vaccines Performance Reports

These reports assess the performance of State and Territory governments against the four benchmarks associated with reward payments in the National Partnership Agreement on Essential Vaccines (NP). The four benchmarks are:

  • Benchmark 1: maintaining or increasing vaccine coverage for Indigenous Australians
  • Benchmark 2: maintaining or increasing coverage in agreed areas of low immunisation coverage
  • Benchmark 3: maintaining or decreasing wastage and leakage
  • Benchmark 4: maintaining or increasing vaccination coverage for four year olds.

The Productivity Commission's role is to provide an independent assessment to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on whether States and Territories have achieved the performance benchmarks in the NP.

The assessment is provided to COAG before reward payments are made. The Productivity Commission does not recommend whether payments should be made under the NP.
