The NDA is a high-level agreement between the Commonwealth and state and territory governments relating to the provision of disability services for people with disability. It is a key accountability mechanism for the achievement of outcomes in the disability services sector, supported by Commonwealth and state own source funding provided separate to the agreement. It contains roles and responsibilities for each level of government and joins these efforts together through nationally agreed objectives and outcomes to measure performance in the delivery of services to people with disability, their families and carers.
The intent of this review is to consider:
In undertaking this review, the Commission should have regard to:
1. Current reform priorities including:
2. The interface between the NDIS and mainstream service systems, noting that many people who are unable to directly access the NDIS may access support through alternative service providers, mainstream services, and their communities.
3. Responsibility for ensuring that people with disability have access to government services, provided by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments, together with development of agreed performance measures.
Submissions are due by Friday 24 August 2018.
