Productivity Commission to examine competition and choice in human services

New inquiry to examine topic covered at a recent AHURI conference

11 May 2016

The Productivity Commission has established a public inquiry to identify services within the human services sector that are best suited to increased application of competition, contestability and informed user choice. The inquiry comes on the back of Professor Ian Harper’s recommendations from the Federal Government’s Competition Policy Review. The topic was also the subject of the recent AHURI conference: My way home, competition and choice in human services.

The Productivity Commission will invite submissions and hold public hearings, with the study report to be published within 6 months and the final inquiry report within 18 months.

Key presentations and video from the AHURI conference, including the keynote address from Professor Harper are available.
