Endeavour Foundation CEO David Barbagallo has welcomed the suggestion by Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey that the administration of the (National Disability Insurance Scheme) NDIS could be managed by an existing entity such as Medibank Private.
"I welcome the possibility that the Government will explore any solution that will leave the maximum amount of money in the hands of people with a disability," Mr Barbagallo said.
"The establishment of a national disability support system has never been done before in Australia and it is important that we get it right. This is not a case of throwing something out that is already there - it doesn't exist yet," he said.
"There are existing systems that could potentially achieve a roll out more efficiently than the creation of a new administrative bureaucracy for the NDIS. A smooth transition is going to be essential as thousands of Australians with a disability leave state-based support systems in the years ahead.
"However Endeavour Foundation would like to see assurances that any such entity would remain under the control of Government, to ensure the NDIS continues to operate as intended," Mr Barbagallo concluded.
