What we’ve been asked to look at
The focus of this study is the National Disability Agreement (established in 2009 and revised in 2012), which relates to the provision of disability services.
The Commission will review the Agreement, including by examining progress against the performance framework in the Agreement and the extent to which it has supported improved outcomes for people with disability, their families, and carers.
This is the first of the Commission’s reviews of nationally significant sector-wide agreements between the Commonwealth and the States and Territories.
The Commission will consult broadly and actively with all jurisdictions and other stakeholders.Read the Terms of Reference National Disability Agreement 2012 Media release
Issues paper release and initial submissions
The Commission plans to release an issues paper to guide people in preparing a submission.

Participants should provide evidence to support their views, including data and specific examples where possible.
The Commission will be released mid/late June 2018.
Final report to Government and release
The final study report is to be handed to the Australian Government in January 2019 and released shortly after.
