The time to start building SDA has finally come.

DSC has been consulting with SIL providers for a number of years and has yet to meet an organisations whose quote did not reveal scope for optimisation. Quotes often contain inconsistencies or errors as a result of misinterpretation of NDIS policies and in a limited number of instances we have identified overquoting, a very risky move with the new national approach to Quality & Safeguards.

Come ready to work! In this half day workshop we will guide providers through the process of making an optimised SIL quote, including:

  • Understanding the SIL quoting tool
  • How different inputs and assumptions impact the quote
  • Optimising rates, rosters and ratios

This is not a beginners workshop. We're going to get straight into SIL quoting processes so if you need to brush up on the basics of what SIL is and how it fits in with other NDIS funding streams, you might want to check out our NDIS Living & Housing Options workshop, run in the morning of each session (except Canberra).

Brent Woolgar

Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet.

Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.

Gareth McKeen

Gareth has been highly successful leading organisational transition to the NDIS drawing on insights gained as a CEO and senior manager across 5 different industry sectors over a three decade career. He has dropped out of university 4 times in the 3 different countries, but somehow completed two degrees, including a Masters of Management. His signature philosophy is to create and pursue a 'Jigsaw of Excellence', an approach born out of his involvement at three Olympic games as team manager of a gold medal winning team. The Jigsaw analogy recognises that all the bits of an organisation are inter-linked and each plays a key role in achieving outcomes.

Having successfully developed, submitted and claimed over $7.5m worth of SIL quotes, Gareth has hands on experience in SIL from the perspective of a service provider. As CEO of a small/medium organisation, Gareth decided that SIL was critical to their operation and so took on the challenge of being responsible for creating a SIL roster spreadsheet, filling out the SIL quotes and then claiming the SIL via the NDIS portal.
