The National Management Group (NMG) is the decision making body for national exotic plant pest and animal disease eradication programmes under the Emergency Animal Disease Response Agreement (EADRA) established in 2002 and the Emergency Plant Pest Response Deed (EPPRD) established in 2005. The NMG is chaired by the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. The membership comprises senior officials as all governments and industry parties cost sharing the national response to an exotic pest or disease incursion. The NMG's role is to make decisions on the technical feasibility and cost-benefit for eradicating an exotic pest or disease in accordance with a national response plan and agreed cost shared budget. The number of members is determined on a case by case basis in accordance with the EADRA and EPPRD.
