Inquiry into NDIS market in Queensland

In April 2020, the Queensland Government asked the Queensland Productivity Commission (QPC) to undertake an inquiry into the NDIS market in Queensland.

QPC engaged broadly with people with disability, their families, carers and advocates and service providers and peak bodies throughout the consultation process, and the Queensland Government provided two submissions to the Inquiry.

The report includes 20 findings and 56 recommendations across important areas of the NDIS market.

The Queensland Government has developed a response to the final report which provides a strategic direction statement to guide Queensland’s efforts in improving the performance of the NDIS; and a position on each recommendation.

The Queensland Government has accepted or accepted in-principle 54 of the recommendations and partially supported one recommendation. One recommendation is no longer applicable.

The final report of the QPC Inquiry into the NDIS market in Queensland provides Queensland with a solid evidence base to advocate for market policy reform at the national level, particularly through governance arrangements such as the Disability Reform Ministers’ Meeting.

An easy read version of the Queensland Government response summary is under development and will be made available as soon as possible.
