The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a community insurance scheme in which the government of Australia directly invests in people with disability. The scheme is given legal effect through the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (the Act), and associated enabling legislation. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Quality and Safeguards Commission (the “NDIS Commission”) is the Federal Government regulatory body overseeing the administration and regulation of the NDIS. The NDIS Commission manages the registration of the providers of NDIS services. Under the scheme, the registered providers are required to undertake third party quality assessment by way of either certification or verification against the NDIS Practice Standards. Depending on the complexity of services and the registration groups, the audits are conducted against Core Modules and other applicable modules as per the scheme requirements.
