NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework – Safeguards for participants who manage their own plans discussion
Some participants may decide to manage the supports in their plan for themselves, ask someone else do it for them (a plan nominee) or use a registered plan manager. Any of these plan management choices are regarded as self-management. This contrasts with the situation where the NDIA and the participant have agreed that the NDIA will be responsible for purchasing and managing their supports.
A key question for those managing all or some of their own supports is what, if any, quality and safeguard protections should apply.
