    About the survey

    The Consult Australia’s Practice Performance Survey (PPS) is a secure, user-friendly, electronic survey tool which provides member firms with the opportunity to benchmark their performance within the industry across a range of key performance indicators including revenues; expenses, number of employees; utilisation; profit margins; and working capital investment days. Survey participation is restricted to Consult Australia members.

    This survey has two main purposes. The first is to provide firms with industry data on the key business performance metrics including return on investment. This will show each participant how the return they achieved in the previous financial year compares with the average return earned by other businesses in the industry. The second is to provide data on the size, structure and performance of the industry as a whole. This information is used to develop and support the material Consult Australia puts to government (and others) to advance the interests of members. As a result, your participation in the survey will not only provide results that will help you to benchmark and improve your profitability; they will also help us to lobby effectively on your behalf. 

    There is no cost to member firms for participating in the PPS.

    Participation in the PPS and access to the resulting firm performance benchmarking report are provided by Consult Australia as a free service to members—there are no additional charges for participation.  The benchmarking report will be produced by Management for Design (*see information below) and will be provided to all participants three weeks after the closing date of the survey. Additional analysis of firm results and/or more tailored benchmarking information will also be available through Management for Design by direct arrangement.
