Yes. No providers have a right to take away your choice and control of how to use your funding. The contracts clients are made to sign, although they should reflect these freedoms, conflict with NDIA policy. When in doubt, confer with NDIA and request they call this practice out as a conflict of choice & control. For example, many clients have calls into NDIA to combat this, requesting that restrictive practices don't get to receive their government funding.

No. Stapell is Australia-wide. We've worked in many states and factor in negotiated travel with other work in the area, similar to any national program efficiencies.
