In the case of syringe management plan, the stakeholders include Maribyrnong Council, Yarra Council and other neighboring ones, manufacturers, distributors and end consumers for safe disposal containers, any banks or financial providers if loan obtained for project implementation, maintenance staff in all public centers, printers publishing the booklets/brochures and distributors, drug users or even diabetic patients all of who uses syringe and the general public.
The Council has the authority to implement and influence the project at any stage. The project does not end since it is ongoing until there are no syringe-users, which is not practical. Hence the Council must delegate authority such that it is properly implemented throughout its life. The manufacturers and distributors of containers and publishers and distributors of booklets are the ones who profit though not to a great extent, since it is a project meant for enhancing public safety. However, these stakeholders, if they meet the project criteria successfully, may get a long-term assignment-on-hand.
The finance providers who help the Council implement the project will also gain a smaller profit. The drug users and diabetic patients are expected to use these containers for disposal and they may find it difficult to follow the new rule, since they have not been accustomed to such a habit. The maintenance staffs are the ones who will be additionally burdened with daily disposal of such containers. Though not a big burden, they will be entitled to do it on a daily basis, and hence it is necessary to offer a small salary increment for this burden. Though there are no competitors for such a project, the Council may well take Yarra as a benchmark. The general public can enjoy the benefits of the project, since they are safeguarded against syringe infections (WorldBank.org, N.d.).
