2010 BCA Portfolio Assessment

FRDC completed (16 June 2010) Benefit Cost-Analysis on on 18 R&D subprograms comprising over 200 projects which will deliver a total R&D portfolio assessment. This analysis will provide data for which the FRDC and its partners can optimise future investment decisions based on an adaptive management approach.

The 2010 economic evaluation of the 18 randomly selected clusters of FRDC investment across three programs has found that the average return to FRDC investment is 5.6 to 1.

The research projects completed or substantially completed between July 2002 and June 2007 were assessed, and this population was divided into 32 clusters of investment by grouping projects into homogenous subject areas. It was from these 32 clusters that the 18 clusters analysed were randomly selected. The total value of FRDC funding for this population was $92.76 million (nominal). The FRDC investment in the eighteen clusters analysed totalled $51.63 million therefore represented 56% of FRDC’s total investment (in nominal terms) in the population. The 18 report from each assessment can be accessed from the list below.

The BCA Summary Report 29 July 2010 provides the detail and summation of the total portfolio assessment.
