The National Disability Insurance Scheme represents a reform of a magnitude unseen in Australia—at full scheme, the NDIS was originally expected to cost $22 billion and support approximately 470,000 participants. Indeed, the Scheme’s significant scope for impact to improve the lives of its participants warrants that proper evaluation is undertaken and stakeholder interactions are collaborative and outcomes driven. This article reviews 75 pieces of ‘grey’ literature to gain insights into the challenges facing the Scheme. In addition, it examines how the related policy discourse has development over the previous ten years. The contribution of this article is to categorise and reframe the challenges facing the NDIS to afford renewed vigour in research aimed at its evaluation. Further, the insights generated by this analysis would serve to inform international policy discourse and initiatives.
