Management of money policy - rights and accountability

The objective of this policy is to give effect to the implementation of Part 6 of the Act – Rights and Accountability, Division 2 – Provisions Relating to the Management of Money.

This policy will provide disability service providers and their staff with an understanding of their roles and responsibilities in relation to the management of money for people with a disability living in department managed or funded residential services provided by registered disability service providers. The same requirements apply to any other support services that involve handling of program participants’ funds.

The key purpose of this part of the Act is to create specific rights for persons receiving supports, particularly those residing in residential services, and to impose specific obligations on registered disability service providers involved in the handling and management of money belonging to people with a disability.
