Policy and Commissioning Framework

In July 2015, all governments in Australia agreed to the ILC Policy Framework.
The policy has now been given to the NDIA to implement. The purpose of the NDIA’s ILC Commissioning Framework is to translate the ILC Policy Framework into action.

At the end of 2015 we released a consultation draft of the Commissioning Framework. The draft outlined how the NDIA planned to fund and manage ILC activities in the future.

The draft ILC Commissioning Framework committed to talking more with people with disability, their families and carers as well as people who work in the sector about some key parts of the Framework. National consultation on key elements of the ILC Commissioning Framework were held from February to April 2016. People provided feedback on the Consultation Draft of the ILC Commissioning Framework by:

  • Making a written submission, and
  • Attending a face-to-face consultation session which were held in metropolitan and regional locations across Australia

The feedback was used to inform the latest version of the ILC Commissioning Framework, which was released in November 2016 by the NDIA.
