As part of the current reforms to Disability Employment Services (DES) program, a new National Panel of Assessors (NPA) has been established from a grant selection process, to deliver assessment services from 1 July 2018. The NPA will provide a range of independent assessment services to assist people with disability who are seeking employment and/or keep sustainable employment.
As a result of the grant application process:
- 93 organisations were recommended to deliver NPA Assessment services from 1 July 2018,
- 48 new NPA organisations were recommended to start providing NPA assessment services across Australia, and
- 45 existing NPA organisations were recommended to continue to deliver NPA services.
A list of organisations that have received and accepted offers to deliver NPA from 1 July 2018 is now available on the DSS website.
