Memorandum of Understanding for NDIS Transition

In July 2014, the Queensland Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

Under the agreement, the NDIA established offices in Townsville and Brisbane in July 2014. NDIA officers will work in close collaboration with staff from the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services on a range of NDIS readiness activities.

The MoU enables the department to work closely with the NDIA and means we will have the opportunity to inform the design and development of the scheme in Queensland.

The objectives of the MoU are to:

  • get the Queensland community as NDIS-ready as possible for the commencement and roll out of the NDIS from 1 July 2016
  • make the Queensland disability system as consistent as possible with the NDIS, including adopting NDIS-like policies and processes wherever possible
  • facilitate a smooth and effective transition in Queensland as part of the NDIS roll-out from 2016.

The NDIA will continue to build their presence in Queensland as we move closer to the commencement of the NDIS from July 2016.
