WA Government closes in on NDIS deal

The State Government is on the verge of clinching a deal to run its disability services from Perth, rather than 3200km away in Geelong.

ButThe West Australian understands having a locally run National Disability Insurance Scheme will come at a cost to WA, with the State having to provide more money for the privilege.

WA has stood its ground on administering its disability services, rather than outsourcing the job to the National Disability Insurance Agency in Victoria.

The State Government has insisted its disability system is cheaper, more efficient and better for people needing support.
