The Resource Allocation and Unit Pricing project was initiated to enable a more open, transparent and sustainable model of funding and service delivery across specialist disability services and some elements of community services (family support).

Implementation of the Resource Allocation and Unit Price framework stemmed from the Development of a Resource Allocation and Unit Pricing Framework – Phase 2, March 2011 – Final Report that was developed by KPMG. The report made recommendations on the transitioning arrangements required to move to a unit pricing approach.

Disability and Community Services (DCS) presented the process for implementation at four forums across the State during August 2011. Following these forums, the Unit Pricing Implementation Team undertook service visits with organisations across the State. The Implementation Team was the key linkage between organisations and the Department in negotiating the translation to unit pricing.

Implementation of the Resource Allocation and Unit Pricing Framework aimed to:

  • Place services on a viable and sustainable footing in order to meet demand
  • Improve client access and portability
  • Drive accountability for client outcomes
  • Achieve fairness and equity of funding allocation,
  • Achieve clarity around the services purchased and provided.

The implementation of unit pricing enables greater clarity and certainty as to what the Department purchases via funding agreements. The implementation of unit pricing has ensured that historical and local funding arrangements that were in place have been clarified and resolved.

A Unit Pricing Framework Implementation Project Execution Plan was developed for the Unit Pricing Steering Committee in November 2011. This Plan provided the project outputs, scope of work and the management plan for the Project.
