Terms of Reference for the NLAP review

Published on March 21, 2023

Department of Justice and Attorney-General circulated the final Terms of Reference (TORs) for the NLAP Review.  While the final TORs are very similar to the draft  there have been some reframing of  areas including:

  • Whether existing arrangements are appropriate to responding to emergencies and new priorities;
  • A more extensive requirement to look at complexity, intensity and integration of service delivery, including integration with other social services;
  • How data can be better connected with broad outcomes, moving away from the language of outcomes framework.

The timeframe to report to the Commonwealth Attorney-General remains at December 2023.

We will keep the sector posted about the appointment of the reviewer and the process of engaging with the review.
