The network outcome contract (NOC) specifies the key results areas (KRA) and key performance indicators (KPI) to be measured to evaluate the overall performance of the Contractor.
An updated KRA guideline [PDF, 719 KB] applies for NOC Contracts commencing after 1 January 2018.
The pre-existing guideline [PDF, 1.8 MB], scoring template [XLSX, 23 KB] and reporting template [XLSX, 108 KB], along with the amendments listed below, support the framework for assessing a Contractors’ performance against the key performance indicators in NOCs established before 2018. Using the framework described in the guideline allows all the parties to these contracts to measure their performance consistently and accurately.

The template [DOCX, 12 MB] defines the roles, practices and procedures in preparation for and during an incident response and should be completed in collaboration with our NOC teams.
