A participant who chooses to engage someone to provide supports under an NDIS plan will generally enter into a written agreement with the provider (a Service Agreement).
This is a consumer contract between a participant and a provider, the NDIA is not a party to the agreement. It should be documented and in place before the service begins.
What should they include:
- The outcomes to be achieved for the participant
- Supports to be provided and their costs
- How and when the participant requires the supports
- How long the supports are to be provided
- When and how the agreement will be reviewed
- How to deal with any problems or questions that arise
- The participant’s and providers’ responsibilities and obligations under the agreement
- How much notice is required to change or end the service agreement
- How any changes are notified.
