NDS argues for careful management of competition principles in disability services

I need to know this because:
  • The submission outlines the likely impacts of increased competition on disability service providers emerging under the NDIS.
  • Desirable elements of a reformed disability sector are highlighted.
  • NDS notes that the dramatically increased application of competition principles in disability services has not been fully tested.
  • Emerging risks are highlighted. NDS provides comment on what is required and what should be considered.

The introduction of the NDIS provides fertile material for the Productivity Commission to explore the role of competition and choice in human services.

NDS has prepared a submission to the commission outlining the likely impacts of increased competition on disability service providers, particularly if some design features are less than optimal. This information should be of benefit to the Productivity Commission as it identifies new sectors for competition reform.
