NDIA’s Insurance Principles stated in the 2019-2023 Corporate Plan

There was a delivery error or similar, which needs fixing by the Right to Know team.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

Please provide a copy of all references, citations and all underlying sources of the NDIA’s ‘Insurance Principles’ cited in the NDIA Corporate Plan 2019-2023 [1].

Context:

In Appendix 1: Insurance Principles of the NDIA’s Corporate Plan 2019-2023, the Agency states:

“The Scheme is premised on an insurance, not welfare, approach. This insurance approach is underpinned by four insurance principles:
1. Develop actuarial estimates of the reasonable and necessary support needs of the targeted population: The Scheme Actuary will estimate the aggregate annual funding requirements through analysis of reasonable and necessary support needs, including a buffer for cash-flow volatility and uncertainty. We will continually test the aggregate funding requirement against emerging experience.
2. Focus on lifetime value for Scheme participants: we will focus on lifetime value for Scheme participants, seeking opportunities for the most cost-effective allocation of resources through early investment in capacity building.
3. Invest in research and innovation: we invest in research and innovation aligned to its goals of improving social and economic participation, and independence of participants. 

4. Support the development of community capability and social capital: we will invest at a systemic level, in addition to providing individual supports. This includes encouraging the use of mainstream services, building community capacity and social capital. These activities will benefit all people with disability, including people with disability who are not participants in the Scheme. 

The NDIA Board will govern the insurance principles and assess, monitor, report and manage Scheme sustainability within a prudential framework “ [2]. However, no specific terms of reference, citations or official links to this view is provide. This request seeks the source/input and validity of these views and definitions.

Thank you for your assistance with this request.

Yours faithfully,

Shirley
