VMIAC’S response to the Administrative Reviews Reform Issues Paper 2023

On May 4th, VMIAC published a response to the public consultation on the new system for federal administrative review (the new body) which will replace the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

This submission contains answers to some of the consultation questions in the Issues Paper published by the Attorney-General’s Department regarding the Administrative Review Reform and makes 7 key recommendations.

The focus of this submission is centered around the experiences of people living with psychosocial disabilities who are appealing decisions made by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

VMIAC currently offers a NDIS Appeals service for people with psychosocial disabilities and/or experiences of mental ill health or emotional distress who are seeking access to the NDIS or navigating review processes. Our service primarily involves mid-to-long-term advocacy support for people appealing NDIS decisions. Therefore, our responses relate to NDIS appeals processes and experiences of people with psychosocial disability in the NDIS as they have been identified by our staff.
