Pricing Arrangement Reference Group

The NDIA’s Pricing Arrangement Reference Group (PARG) provides advice, through the CEO, to the NDIA Board on price control arrangements for the NDIS.

This is to ensure price regulation activities and decisions are coordinated to support the best possible outcomes for NDIS participants during the transition to a competitive market place.

The PARG’s Terms of Reference (DOCX 53KB) outlines the PARG’s role and how transparency is supported in pricing policy.
