In 2018, the ABC and SBS were reviewed to determine whether or not they operated efficiently. Among other things, the reviewers wrote in the executive summary that:
Both the ABC and SBS are focused on improving the efficiency of their operations in order to maximise resources devoted to the creation and acquisition of content and to facilitate the investment required in new content models and new delivery channels. However, assuming ongoing funding constraints, it is unlikely that incremental efficiency improvements will be sufficient to achieve their objectives—more profound changes are required. In the case of the ABC this is likely to include significant investment in digital platforms—investment that is unlikely to be possible without additional short-term funding support.
This paragraph buries important ideas.
The challenge we make is to turn this paragraph into clear English: no abstract nouns, not empty adjectives; short sentences; words that earn their place.
We will publish alternative, clearer versions next month.
