Indexation Rate

The 2022-23 indexation rate, applicable to service agreements from 1 July 2022, is 2.55 per cent which is an increase of 1.25 per cent on last year’s rate. Providers with an eligible service agreement will receive this change to prices from 1 July 2022.

Determination of the indexation rate is per the Non-Government Human Services Sector (Indexation Policy) which applies to service agreements between State Government agencies and not-for-profit community services providers for the purchase of community services under the Delivering Community Services in Partnership (DCSP) Policy.

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.
