Costing and pricing skill and knowledge is a key area for providers to improve business practices to be prepared to operate in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) environment. Together with Curtin University NFP Initiative, NDS has developed a practical and integrated Costing and Pricing Learning Program.

This one-day seminar is designed to introduce finance and managerial staff within a not-for-profit (NFP) association or company to the basic concepts of finance within the new environment of the NDIS - including elements, where needed, relating to the remaining state-based systems, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and other regulatory bodies.

We will focus on the practical elements required to understand the new environment, drawing from both NFP and commercial backgrounds to provide a full understanding of the challenges we face.

The seminar will cover costing practice, pricing, and NDIS and costing and pricing.

As a result of participating in this seminar, you should be able to:

  • understand Activity Based Costing and why it is used in the costing and pricing of disability services under individualised funding arrangements;
  • understand the key decisions that need to be made prior to commencing costing and pricing;
  • understand how to develop the parameters of costing and pricing;
  • appreciate where costing and pricing information may come from; and
  • understand some of the governance arrangements that need to be considered in undertaking costing and pricing.
