Dear Ms Tibbits

I saw a copy of your email (to "Dear Stakeholder") that said:

Discussions have already 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. The NDIS is not a capped program and priority will be given to participants who have already been made eligible for the scheme.

I am wary of your wording. Please can you tell me how many initial planning meetings for new NDIS participants from the ACT will be conducted each day from today (20/10/2016) to next Friday (28/10/2016) inclusive?

Also, will NDIS eligibility assessments be processed through the same period?

I would be interested to hear why, if  "the NDIS is not a capped program" as you claim, the NDIS stopped each time the cap was reached ... that is, in South Australia and in the Australian Capital Territory.

Dear Stakeholder

I am writing to you with respect to ongoing planning for NDIS eligible participants in the ACT.

Discussions have already 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. The NDIS is not a capped program and priority will be given to participants who have already been made eligible for the scheme.

I would ask that you please circulate this message widely amongst your networks.

Regards

Alice
