The purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding is to establish a suitable form of governing framework, and entities within the framework, to facilitate the parties working collaboratively and cooperatively to manage and operate the Wimmera and Glenelg River Systems Bulk and Environmental Entitlements, Instruments of Appointment and Carryover Declaration and, where it is required, to seek agreement on appropriate measures and mechanisms.
The framework seeks to achieve a greater degree of transparency and openness through the participation of the parties, and this should lead to better outcomes and provide greater confidence to the responsible Ministers and portfolio agencies, as demonstrated through the local level of support for and commitment to various performance obligations and requirements.
The framework is intended to complement, and is not intended to duplicate or replace, the responsibilities and roles that are formally designated to the individual parties.
