The supplier search animation explains how to use the supplier search engine.
NDIS ProviderFinder is a free directory. We don't charge NDIS participants or providers. You can access the NDIS provider finder here or through the MyPlace portal.
In your request, you must search for and select your supplier using your unique worker evaluation identifier. You may need to ask your provider or participant for identification for the work history test. If you're working for a self-managed participant, you'll need to search for the participant by the participant's last name. Your NDIS authorization status will be recorded in the NDIS National Commission's Worker Selection Database (NWSD).
Vendors that do not meet the national requirements for NDIS checks may face penalties under federal laws. Providers can contact the external liaison worker evaluation assistance service of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission for more information on the functions evaluated. The Framework aimed to establish a coherent worker evaluation at the national level that would allow evaluated workers to provide NDIS services and supports in any state or territory, and any employer would provide services within the framework of 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.
If you are unable to provide sufficient documents in these lists, you will need to contact the Victoria NDIS Worker Assessment Unit. 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. These crimes include performing a risk assessment function without an authorization from the NDIS and providing false or misleading information. 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. The supplier or participant you wish to nominate would have received their unique identification when they requested access to the NDIS Worker Selection Database (NWSD), external link. You can download a flow chart of the NDIS worker selection application process from the NDIS Commission website External link The NDIS Worker Selection Control (NDIS Check) is an important part of the Framework that works with other components to support the dignity, safety and well-being of NDIS participants. The national verification and supplier obligations of the NDIS can be found on the worker evaluation website of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission External link.
One of the many ways in which the NDIS offers you options and control is by allowing you to choose which NDIS service providers you use. 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.
