Statement regarding outgoing NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner Tracy Mackey

Today, NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner Tracy Mackey has announced that she will be resigning from her position effective in May.

I want to thank Ms Mackey for her time at the Commission, and wish her well for her next endeavours.

The historic Independent NDIS Review and the Disability Royal Commission recommended strengthening the Scheme's regulation powers and designing a system that meets the needs of a modern society.

The Albanese Government is committed to helping to protect Australians with disability from unscrupulous operators.

We are consulting people with disability and taking advice from all corners of the disability community on how together we can build a better NDIS disability watchdog.

The Government will now commence a recruitment process to find a new Commissioner to lead the NDIS watchdog though this significant period of Scheme reform.
