The Australia-wide National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), an independent Commonwealth statutory agency. The NDIS is currently rolling out across Western Australia on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out by 1 July 2020.
The Department of Communities (Communities) in WA is responsible for ensuring that NDIS providers comply with State quality and safeguarding requirements.
Service providers wishing to provide NDIS supports must register as a service provider with NDIA and the Department (www.ndis.gov.au > Providers).
To register with Communities, providers need to apply for registration on the Disability Services Panel Provider (DSPP).
Applications for DSPP registration close on 14 April 2020.
