The draft report finds targeted reforms are needed for the NDIS to reach its full potential. It sets out 39 draft recommendations to:

  • realign participant, provider and agency incentives
  • increase the availability of information
  • simplify processes and reduce the compliance burden
  • provide greater flexibility and remove restrictions
  • improve the governance of the scheme.
