Indexation Rate

The 2021-22 indexation rate, applicable to service agreements from 1 July 2021, is 1.30 per cent. Providers with an eligible service agreement will receive this change to prices from 1 July 2021.

The Indexation Policy for the Non-Government Human Services Sector (Indexation Policy) is applicable to service agreements for community services under the Delivering Community Services in Partnership (DCSP) Policy.

Service Agreements

The Indexation Policy applies to service agreements between State Government agencies and not-for-profit community services service providers for the purchase of community services. Where service agreements are part-funded by the Commonwealth Government, the Indexation Policy applies to the State Government funded component of these service agreements.

Where service agreements have pricing frameworks designed to facilitate individualised funding agreements, the Indexation Policy applies to the unit prices or similar pricing mechanisms.
