Appendix F: Disability reporting mechanisms

Since 1994, Commonwealth departments and agencies have reported on their performance as policy adviser, purchaser, employer, regulator and provider under the Commonwealth Disability Strategy. In 2007–08, reporting on the employer role was transferred to the Commission's State of the Service Report and the APS Statistical Bulletin. These reports are available on the Commission's website, www.apsc.gov.au. From 2010–11, departments and agencies were no longer required to report on these functions.

The Commonwealth Disability Strategy has been overtaken by the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020, which sets out a 10-year national policy framework to improve the lives of people with disability, promote participation and create a more inclusive society. A high-level two-yearly report will track progress against the six outcome areas of the strategy and present a picture of how people with disability are faring. The first of these reports was released in late 2014 and is available at www.dss.gov.au.
