Market enablement

Market Approach - statement of opportunity and intent

The Market Approach explains the NDIA's role in encouraging a healthy and diverse market place for disability services and supports (market stewardship). The Market Approach is particularly important as the disability services and support sector transitions to the NDIS because to the expected growth in the number and range of disability support providers and services.

The Market Approach outlines how the Agency will work with industry and the community to encourage and support major growth in the size, number and range of disability support providers and the services they offer.

Market enablement - role of NDIA as market steward

The Market Enablement Framework follows on from the Market Approach and discusses how the NDIA will fulfil its role as a market steward as the disability services market undergoes reform. It gives an understanding of the processes and procedures the NDIA is using to assess market issues and to determine the appropriate response to ensure a vibrant and functioning disability services market.

Benchmarking project overview

Effective and sustainable service delivery of the NDIS is critical to achieving a vibrant and responsive market. A lack of useful information makes this development difficult, benchmarking is a useful, reliable and powerful resource to help address this.

Benchmarking is common in most industries and has been effectively developed in the Australian aged care sector and in the social care sectors in the UK and USA.
