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.
The PARG is chaired by the NDIA’s Scheme Actuary, David Gifford. There are 4 independent members of the PARG:
- Jim Cox PSM, who contributes advice from his experience in price regulation, economics and social policy issues
- Julie Hulcombe PSM, who has experience in allied health reform and has made significant contributions to improving high quality care access in Queensland
- Deb Cope, who has a background in economics, price regulation, regulatory processes and rural and remote service delivery
- Lynne Pezzullo, who brings experience in market development, consumer advocacy, price regulation and the disability sector.
