In advance of, or probably because of, the commencement of hearings for the Disability Royal Commission, the Commonwealth Government has commissioned a review of the NDIS Act and is proposing a Participant Service Guarantee to set service standards for the NDIS. DCLS has had input to the review, supporting mandated time periods for decision making by the agency, and accessible information and independent support for participants.
