National Disability Insurance Agency ‘saves’ money by not spending

The National Disability Insurance Agency underspent its budget by $18 million in the 2013-14 financial year, driving savings by reducing formal support in favour of “informal support” provided by family and community members.

According to the  NDIA annual report, tabled in federal parliament on Wednesday, only $130.9 million of an allocated $148.8 million was spent on supporting people with disabilities in 2013-14.
