- In part 1, the Commission is to inquire into the South Australian bulk grain export supply chain costs over the past 10 years, and
- In part 2, should the Commission find areas where bulk grain supply chain costs are identified as inefficient, options should be provided for addressing those inefficiencies.
The draft report (Part 1) is to be provided to the Treasurer no later than 30 June 2018, with the date for the final report (including Part 2 if required) to be provided to the Treasurer being no later than 31 December 2018.
