The Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme was appointed by resolution by the House of Representatives on 4 July 2019 and the Senate on 22 July 2019. The committee is composed of 5 Members and 5 Senators.
Inquiries into specific aspects of the Scheme
The committee occasionally undertakes inquiries into specific aspects of the Scheme. These inquiries are advertised on the committee's webpage and circulated around disability networks. When the committee undertakes such an inquiry, it will invite submissions from individuals and organisations.
General issues around the implementation and performance of the NDIS
The committee seeks information about the implementation and performance of the NDIS. In particular, the committee invites submissions and information from participants, their carers and family members, service providers, and representative organisations.
Submissions outlining details of individual cases or complaints may assist the committee in identifying broader systemic issues for investigation. However, the committee is not in a position to provide advice on individual circumstances, nor is it able to overturn or remake decisions made by the National Disability Insurance Agency. People with concerns about these matters should contact the National Disability Insurance Agency directly.
