26/08/2019

I need to know this because:
  • Input is sought on both the review of the NDIS Act and development of the Participant Guarantee
  • The Guarantee aims to streamline NDIS processes and reduce wait times
  • The NDIS Act is being reviewed to support the Guarantee
  • NDS invites member input to inform our submission

The Department of Social Services (DSS) is seeking input on the review of the NDIS Act and the development of the NDIS Participant Service Guarantee.

The new Guarantee is expected to be in place from 1 July 2020 and aims to shorten timeframes related to decisions regarding NDIS access, and plan approvals and reviews.As part of its election commitment to develop and legislate the Guarantee, the Commonwealth Government has commissioned a review of the NDIS Act. The review will focus on changes to the NDIS legislation necessary to support the Guarantee - including potential amendments to the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 and the NDIS Rules, but not to the design or intent of the NDIS.The review will be led by David Tune AO PSM, with recommendations to be delivered to government by the end of 2019, supporting the rollout of the Participant Service Guarantee from 1 July 2020.The Department of Social Services is seeking input from people with disability and their families, carers and supporters - on NDIS processes under the NDIS Act and what should be included in the Guarantee. Contributions can be made directly to DSS via online survey, participation in face-to-face workshops, or providing a written submission.
