Intergovernmental Agreement on the National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch



Friday, 7 December 2012

On 7 December 2012, COAG reaffirmed its ongoing commitment to a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) by signing an Intergovernmental Agreement for the NDIS Launch. New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory signed bilateral agreements with the Commonwealth which confirm the operational and funding details for the roll-out of the NDIS in each launch site.

May 2013

In preparation for launch in July 2013, details on the planned intake of participants and the balance of cash and in-kind contributions to the scheme during launch were agreed bilaterally between the Commonwealth and New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. These details form appendices to the bilateral agreements with each of these jurisdictions. A further appendix was also agreed with Victoria outlining workforce arrangements for the DisabilityCare Australia Launch Transition Agency in the Barwon region. Work to agree details for launch in 2014 is continuing with the ACT and the Northern Territory.
