The National Disability Insurance System (NDIS Check) Worker Selection Check (NDIS Check) has begun. The NDIS Check is a way to ensure that people who work with NDIS participants do not pose an unacceptable risk to participants. You won't use the NDIS Commission portal as often as the myplace provider portal, but it still plays an important role.
You can download a flow chart of the NDIS worker selection application process from the NDIS Commission website External link. The national verification and supplier obligations of the NDIS can be found on the employee evaluation website of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission External link More specifically, it verifies and authenticates your identity so that you can use the platform for NDIS audits, the registration of new customers, the billing of the NDIS and much more. The Framework aimed to establish a coherent evaluation of workers at the national level that would allow the evaluated workers to provide the services and supports of the NDIS in any state or territory, and any employer would provide services within the framework of the NDIS. You cannot work in an NDIS risk assessment function until you have received an authorization from the NDIS, unless you are subject to a transitional agreement.
The website of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission contains quick reference guides for using worker selection portals (external link). If you have an authorization from the NDIS and you have already paid your WWC check, necessary for your position in the NDIS, you can request a refund by filling out the following refund request form. Once you have completed your request, the provider or participant you designate will receive a notification from the NDIS Commission stating that they have 30 days to verify your request. If you have an authorization from the NDIS and your role in the NDIS involves work related to children, you must also have an authorization from the WWC or have requested a check from the WWC.
Some people will need to obtain an authorization from the NDIS and an authorization from the WWC, as they can engage in child-related work as part of their role in the NDIS. Do not notify the department, in writing, within 7 days of a material change in circumstances while you are in possession of an authorization from the NDIS or you have requested an authorization from the NDIS. Your NDIS authorization status will be recorded in the NDIS National Commission's Worker Selection Database (NWSD), external link. If you are granted an exclusion from the NDIS, this means that you cannot work in an NDIS risk assessment function for the purposes of the NDIS.
If you are granted an exclusion from the NDIS, you will not be able to request an NDIS check again for five years from the date of notification, unless your circumstances change.
