Productivity Commission draft report
21 June 2017
The Australian Government’s Productivity Commission will receive submissions about its 2 June 2017 draft report into ‘increased competition, contestability and informed user choice to the human services … to improve outcomes for users, and the community as a whole’ up until Friday, 14 July. It will then make its final report to the Australian Government in October 2017.
The paper notes that the ‘human services sector plays a vital role in the wellbeing of the Australian population [covering services including] health, education and community services, for example job services, social housing, prisons, aged care and disability services. There are some features that are common across the range of services and models of service provision, while other features are unique in nature.’
