SDA Pricing Review Results

The long-awaited Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Pricing Review results have just been released. The reports released are dense and technical. As such, it will take some time for us to entirely unpack and understand the full impacts of the new pricing. However, our initial topline analysis appears to indicate:

  • An overarching positive result in uptake of AHS recommendations. 

  • That the majority of configurations have seen increases in pricing.

  • That there is great variability in individual price changes dependent on Design Category, Build Type, Location Factor, Fire Sprinkler status and GST status, including a limited number of downward price changes. 

As the peak industry body for the good practice New Build SDA market, the AHS welcomes the overarching vital injection of government funding into many SDA dwelling configurations as indicated in the final Report.  We thank the Minister for the NDIS, and look forward to working collaboratively with both the Minister and the NDIA into the future, utilising this funding lifeline to support the much needed growth of good practice SDA for the benefit of people with disability. 

AHS further wishes to take this opportunity to thank the NDIA team, for consulting extensively with the good practice SDA market to inform the development of the new SDA Pricing. Please click the button below to view the SDA Pricing Review results.
