Using extensive literature review, we propose a model on service quality improvements for the future of DBYD services in Australia. We discuss the perceived facilitators and hindrances to the service and we develop a testable model for understanding how different aspects of information provided by DBYD to their consumers are evaluated. We conducted a large survey of DBYD stakeholders recently, in which they were asked to value the various parameters of information provided to them, in order to avoid damage. We used a ‘willingness to pay’ concept, associated with factors such as timeliness of response, quality and accuracy. Findings show that these dimensions are indeed valued by many, and variously so across these dimensions of DBYD information.
