Sector development—provider readiness

A tender for a new provider readiness project has been released as part of the Queensland Government’s commitment to build the capacity of service providers, to transition to and operate under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This project is funded through the Commonwealth Department of Social Services under the Sector Development Fund to support people, providers and the workforce to prepare for the NDIS.

The project seeks to build the capacity of existing service providers, and new and potential organisations to enter and operate sustainably in the NDIS market environment. It will target efforts and mobilise service delivery capacities, specifically in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and in culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Applications are being invited for one‐off funding from suppliers that can work with organisations in both urban and discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander locations and communities (up to $700,000), OR in culturally and linguistically diverse communities (up to $500,000).

Applications are being invited via Qtender and will close on Friday 7 April at 2pm AEST.

An industry briefing will take place by telelink for interested parties on Tuesday 21 March at 10am AEST to clarify requirements of procurement. Further details about the briefing are available on Qtender
