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 registered plan management providers.

Individual cases

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.
