The National Disability Agreement (NDA) is one of several nationally significant sector-wide agreements between the Australian and State and Territory Governments.

This study is a review of the NDA, and is the first of the Productivity Commission’s reviews of the agreements. The report sets out our proposals for a new, reinvigorated NDA that would unify all elements of the national disability policy landscape. Ultimately, agreement and implementation of a new NDA is the responsibility of the Australian and State and Territory Governments.

The Commission visited every capital city as part of its consultative processes. The Commission is grateful to the many individuals and organisations who have taken the time to contribute to this study, in particular, those who participated in visits, attended roundtables and provided submissions.
