Joint ACT and NDIA announcement - 19 October 2016
Discussions have occurred between the ACT and the Commonwealth and the NDIA is continuing planning in the ACT. All eligible participants will continue to receive access to the NDIA in line with agreed priority intake plans.

NDIA Provider Registration – the ACT Government Role
Information about NDIA provider registration is available on the NDIS website at: http://www.ndis.gov.au/providers
Providers seeking to register to deliver NDIS disability services in the ACT should contact the ACT Government’s Human Services’ Registrar (HSR) for assessment against the ACT safeguard framework.
Please contact the registrar by email at DSA.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on (02) 62054608.
Once you have provided initial contact information and let the HSR know which NDIS service and support clusters you intend to deliver under the NDIS, the HSR will let you know what further evidence you need to provide in order for your organisation’s compliance to be assessed.
Depending on the number and type of services for which you are seeking registration, this process may take approximately two to three weeks from receipt of all required information. The Office of the Human Services Registrar will work with your organisation to help you demonstrate capacity to comply with the quality and safeguarding requirements.
The HSR will advise you via email of its recommendation regarding registration. You should attach that email to your application to the NDIA in lieu of a 'certificate of registration' from the ACT.
