|Current scheme implementation and forecasting for the NDIS||1.72 MB|
From December 2020 to October 2021 the committee conducted an inquiry into independent assessments under the NDIS. During this inquiry, the committee heard a range of views in relation to the projected scheme costs of the NDIS. These included concerns raised by federal NDIS ministers and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) that projected scheme costs posed risks to the long-term sustainability of the scheme. Other submitters however, expressed scepticism about the actuarial data used to argue that there are issues with scheme sustainability, and noted a range of other factors influencing scheme projections.
In consideration of the evidence already presented to the inquiry into independent assessments, the committee decided to conclude that inquiry and initiate a new inquiry with focussed terms of reference to examine some of the broader questions concerning the implementation of the NDIS to date and projections about its future.
