Reporting requirements

The Department of Communities (Disability Services) receives State and Commonwealth funding and in turn provides funding to non-government agencies to provide the most appropriate supports and services to people with disability. 

Disability service providers that receive funding from the Department have contractual reporting obligations. The Department uses the data submitted by disability service providers to meet State and Federal reporting obligations.  

Annual Client and Service Data Collection (ACDC) Online

ACDC is an internet-based application which collects and stores data from disability service organisations. It uses an independent, secure central server to store and transmit service-related data for reporting purposes. Access is restricted to authorised users via designated usernames and passwords. 

The links below lead to resources designed to support disability service organisations to use ACDC. 

In 2017-18, certain organisations were exempted from ACDC reporting obligations. Organisations that are exempted from ACDC reporting obligations in 2018-19 will be notified by the Department directly.

If these resources do not answer your queries, please email the ACDC Help Desk at acdc@communities.wa.gov.au. To help us direct your query, please use the subject line to indicate “General Query” or “Uploader Query”.
