After a delay, the Department of Social Services (DSS) has published a new and enlarged National Panel of Assessors (NPA), which commenced delivering services on 1 July 2018. The delay in releasing the list of assessors caused frustration among existing and new assessors whose capacity to make business decisions was impeded by not knowing the number, identity or location of other assessors.The list of organisations that commenced providing NPA services from 1 July 2018 can now be accessed on the DSS website. The list identifies organisations by Employment Service Area and assessment type.

The NPA has doubled in size, with a total of 93 organisations now delivering NPA services, 48 of them new.
