ARC Grant Success

Congratulations to Professor Anne Kavanagh for the ARC Linkage Project Grant (administered by the University of New South Wales) on better understanding market stewardship in the NDIS.

Stewarding thin markets: improving public sector market effectiveness aims to develop methodologies to identify thin markets in the public service sector.  Thin markets, where there are a low number of buyers or low number of sellers, are a major risk for governments utilising a personalised approach to service delivery.

This project will focus on Canberra, North East Melbourne and Toowoomba as case study areas. Using functional network analysis tools, we will develop new methodologies for identifying thin markets and determine ways emerging markets can be stewarded to better achieve their aims to ultimately ensure that there is equal access to disability services in the NDIS.

Chief Investigators: A/Prof Gemma Carey (UNSW),  A/Prof Helen Dickinson (UNSW), Prof David Gilchrist (UWA), Dr Damon Alexander (Swinburne), Prof Anne Kavanagh (UOM) Prof Satish Chang (UNSW). Partners: Department of Social Services and National Disability Services.

ARC Linkage Grant, $405,000; 2018 – 2021
