National Disability Agreement review: Issues paper

This discussion paper from the Productivity Commission discusses the key issues involved in its review of the National Disability Agreement (NDA). The review will consider the relevance of the objectives, outcomes and outputs of the NDA in the context of contemporary policy settings; progress against the performance framework of the NDA and the extent to which it has supported improved outcomes for people living with disability, their families and carers including performance benchmarks and indicators, and associated timeframes and reporting responsibilities; the roles and responsibilities of the Commonwealth, and state and territory governments under the NDA; and whether the NDA needs updating in light of these considerations, to reflect the changing policy landscape, including the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the National Disability Strategy.
