NDIS Audit – Midterm
It is a requirement of maintaining your NDIS registration to undertake your midterm audit by the due date.
About the NDIS Mid-term audits
Registered NDIS providers are required to undertake a mid-term audit within 18 months from the date of registration as shown on the certificate of registration. Completing the midterm audit by the due date is a condition of maintaining your registration as an NDIS provider. The mid-term audit will assess how you are implementing your services to NDIS participants and how you are continuing to meet the requirements of the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators. This usually involves interviews with participants and staff, as well as file and documentation review.
The NDIS midterm audit is a great opportunity to check how your business is going, and if there are any improvements that can be considered.
Your midterm audit due date can be found when viewing your registration record in the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission’s Provider Portal. The due date is calculated as 18 months after your registration date and occurs halfway through the 3-year registration cycle. If you’re not sure when your midterm audit is due, feel free to contact GCC and our friendly team are happy to help.

Frequently Asked Questions
As undertaking a mid-term audit is a condition of your NDIS registration, failure by a provider to meet this requirement may result in your organisation being in breach of a condition of registration. The Certificate may be suspended, withdrawn, or cancelled for a limited period or permanently.
You will need to demonstrate that you are continuing to meet the requirements of the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators and your obligations as a registered provider. This will involve an assessment of your NDIS policies/ NDIS procedures and completed files or documents. The audit will also involve interviews with staff members and participants who consent to participate in the audit. You may wish to review your previous audit report to assist in your preparation and ensure any outstanding non-conformities from your previous audit have been addressed.
For consistency we endeavour to assign the same NDIS auditor that completed your first audit where possible, with consideration to auditor availability and location, as they have an understanding of your business from the previous audit. For this reason, we encourage you to begin planning your midterm audit early and schedule your NDIS audit in advance to ensure your preferred auditor is available. If you would like to request a different auditor completes your midterm audit, please feel free to let our scheduling team know when arranging your audit date.
