Evaluation of the Disability Support Program (DSP)
In 2014 the DSP was evaluated by KPMG to verify the program was meeting its objectives and to identify options to improve the ongoing operation of the program. The evaluation identified a number of options to improve the program’s design.
In October 2016, a response to these issues was outlined in the DSP consultation paper (see below for link). Stakeholders were invited to consider the options put forward and provide feedback. It was advised that feedback on the ideas presented in the consultation paper, or any other ideas stakeholders propose to improve the DSP, are welcome and, the Government informed the sector that it will consider all feedback before proceeding with any changes to the DSP.
