The project was developed in three stages with progress reports after each stage. The first reported on the perceptions and requirements of the industries in Australia (October 2001). The second dealt with the way in which breeders in other countries organise their genetic programs (April, 2002). Based to a large extent on these, another report (July 2002) set out a framework for a national breeding scheme. It was not prescriptive, as many of the options required careful deliberation by those members of the industry who would be implementing the program or affected by its decisions.
