Intergovernmental Agreement on the National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch

On 7 December 2012, COAG reaffirmed its ongoing commitment to a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) by signing an Intergovernmental Agreement for the NDIS Launch. New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory signed bilateral agreements with the Commonwealth which confirm the operational and funding details for the roll-out of the NDIS in each launch site.

In preparation for launch in July 2013, details on the planned intake of participants and the balance of cash and in-kind contributions to the scheme during launch were agreed bilaterally between the Commonwealth and New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
