The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Citizens’ Jury Scorecard was handed over to representatives at the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) head office in Geelong this week.
The Agency’s initial response to the scorecard’s findings and recommendations has been positive because they have committed to establishing a tracking system to make sure the recommendations arising from the citizens’ jury are responded to and reported back on in a regular way.
The second progress report on the NDIS is also expected to feature information on the citizens’ jury, how it has helped the NDIA and what responses have been undertaken.
Furthermore, the Agency has committed to undertaking more citizens’ juries because they see significant value in this methodology and its ability to interrogate specific areas of the NDIS and contribute to improving the scheme.
