NDIS Audit – Verification

GCC is an Approved Quality Auditor for the NDIS practice standards. We offer both Verification and Certification assessments for NDIS providers.

About the Verification audits

Providers requiring a verification quality audit usually deliver lower risk/lower complexity supports and services. Many providers requiring a verification audit are already subject to professional regulation as a requirement of doing business, for example through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and other professional bodies.

Professional regulation means a practitioner must already meet set standards and is subject to ongoing monitoring of their competency to practice, including through continuing professional development.

Because of the existing obligations of these providers to their relevant professional bodies, and the less complex support types delivered, the provider will engage GCC Auditors to complete a desktop review of the required documentary evidence outlined for each profession in the Verification Module.

    NDIS Audit Requirements Questions

    What do I need to provide?

    A comprehensive checklist will be provided to you if you decide to undertake your audit with GCC.

    You will also have an NDIS Audit Coordinator to assist you with any questions you have.

    As auditors, we are unable to provide you with templates or policies, etc., but we can guide you in the right direction if you have a question about how to meet the requirements.

    The focus areas of the audit will be:

    • Policies and procedures (systems) to meet the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators relevant to your scope.
    • Worker Screening documents and evidence of appropriate qualifications (where applicable)
    • Business insurance
    What qualifications do I need to be an NDIS provider?

    The required qualifications for each occupation group are set by the NDIS Commission and consider professional registration requirements and the industry requirements.

    The last pages of the document outline the qualification required for each registration group. As you scroll up you will see what evidence the auditor will need to sight to evidence the qualifications.

    What is the difference between Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3 Support Coordination?

    Level 1 and 2 support coordination fall under registration group 0106 - Assistance in coordinating or managing life stages, transitions, and supports. This registration group does not have any mandatory qualifications or memberships to be able to deliver supports and falls under the Core Module standards. Providers must demonstrate suitability by meeting the Core Module Practice Standards and Quality Indicators. Auditors will consider how the provider is managing any potential risks associated with the delivery of this support/service and any specific opportunities for improvement.

    Level 3, known as 0132 Specialist Support Coordination, is a specialised registration group centred around complex participant needs and circumstances. Typically, Social Workers and Psychologists are approved however each submission is subject to individual assessment of qualifications, memberships, and professional development by the Commission. Providers must demonstrate suitability by meeting the Core Module and Module 4 Practice Standards and Quality Indicators. Auditors will consider how the provider is managing any potential risks associated with the delivery of this support/service and any specific opportunities for improvement.

    NDIS Registration questions

    How can I remove a registration from my scope?

    You can complete an “application for variation of registration” form (obtained from the NDIS Commission) to request removal of a registration group between audits. Otherwise, simply do not claim any line items that fall under that registration category for the period of your registration. Once it comes time for renewal of your registration you can select to remove it.

    Is there an additional fee to ‘register’ once the NDIS audit is completed?

    The NDIS Commission does not charge a fee for registration.

    What is provisional Certification?
    • Provisional audits assess the documentation and readiness of a provider to start providing NDIS services. It does not require involvement from participants or seek evidence of implementation. If you undertake a provisional audit, you will be required to undergo a full certification audit within 18 months of your registration being granted.
    • Full Certification audits are completed by providers who are registered with the NDIS Commission and/or have existing participants. Stage 1 looks at the documented systems (policies and procedures etc.) and then during stage 2 of the audit, the auditor will interview participants and workers. This is done to ensure the companies systems are being implemented appropriately. A mid-term audit is required 18 months after the NDIS approves the application. The mid-term audit reviews the Governance and Operational Management practice standards as well as various focus areas depending on the providers’ previous audit.
    What kind of insurance do I need?
    • A certificate of currency for current insurance that meets the minimum level of cover commensurate to the scope of the provider.
    • Providers should seek professional advice as to the type and amount of insurance that is necessary.
    • Public liability is mandatory in most cases.
    • Professional indemnity insurance is required when you provide professional advice as a part of your services.
    • If you have workers, you may need to have workers' compensation insurance.
    When can I provide services to NDIA managed participants?

    You can only provide services to NDIA managed participants once the NDIS Commission has approved your application and sent you a certificate of registration.

    Can I change the ABN I am registered in?

    Providers often want to change from a sole trader to a company for tax purposes however there may be other reasons you wish to change your ABN.

    The NDIS Commission tracks provider registration based on the providers ABN. This means, any changes to the ABN will require the provider to apply for a new registration under that ABN with the commission.

    We have assisted many providers through this process and provide notification to the NDIS Commission on your behalf. Please contact us and we can assist you.

    I am an unregistered provider – what are my obligations?

    If you are an unregistered provider, you will still need to meet certain requirements and ensure you follow the NDIS code of conduct. You can find out more here.

    Shelley Farrington
    I was little apprehensive prior to the first stage of the audit not knowing exactly how it would transpire. I was please at the amount of pre information I received and the level of explanation of the process and what they would look at. The auditor had investigated our system prior to the audit and the question-and-answer session went smoothly. Before starting the process, the auditor made us feel comfortable and relaxed and spent time understanding the nature of our business. The overall experience was good and very positive for us and we recommend GCC to any other organisation considering their servicesread more

    My first experience with auditors in my effort to becoming registered with NDIS have been highly positive. GCC's clear pathways that were reinforced from my initial contact with them through to the manager of GCC have been consistently helpful with a great advice and guidance. As a result of their support and recognising the high level demands that will follow with the service scope of my business of early childhood supports and specialist coordination, I was able to create a service where I am now able to employ staff rather than be a sole trader. The icing on the cake was with the auditor (Susan Hickey) who not only used the audit process that meets the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Standards, but her support and guidance was exemplary by the way that can only add value to my services. I appreciated greatly her genuine interest in finding out about my skills and abilities which only demonstrated further my ability to undertake Early Childhood and Specialist Support Coordination. I want to commend Susan for her highest-level professionalism complimented by her expert skills and abilities, as well as her affirmation and validation. Thank you Susan for your contribution to the development of Allied Developmental Care. I will never forget you.read more
