The Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme is conducting an inquiry into the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
While the Terms of Reference are broad-ranging, it is likely that the most relevant to ATSA members will be d):
The adequacy and effectiveness of provider registration and worker screening arrangements, including the level of transparency and public access to information regarding the decisions and actions taken by the Commission.
ATSA intends to make a submission suggesting that the auditing requirement of Assistive Technology businesses, particularly smaller organisations, could be simplified and streamlined.
Further information on the inquiry is available here.
If you have any information you would like to share on this, or other issues with the Commission, please feel free to contact me.
Submissions close on 31 July.
