Senior Practitioner: FAQ #1
Q: When does a behaviour support plan become operational?

A:   A BSP becomes operational when:
     (a)   the APO has authorised the BSP; and
     (b)    the person with a disability has received notice in writing at least two
            days before the use of proposed restraint or seclusion; and
     (c)    a copy has been provided to the Senior Practitioner within 2 working
            days of APO approval.

Senior Practitioner: FAQ #2
Q: How can Authorised Program Officers (APOs) change/adjust the
   dates on shared eBSPs on RIDS?

A:   One service provider develops an eBSP in collaboration with other service
     providers. The date on which this eBSP was developed remains the beginning
     date of the BSP. When a second service provider becomes involved, the date
     of the BSP remains as this same beginning date, reflecting the date the BSP
     was initially authorised by the first service provider.

     Please note that the shared BSP becomes operational from your service’s point
     of view two days after your APO has authorised the BSP and has sent a copy to
     the Senior Practitioner.

     OSP will create a report in RIDS so all service providers who share a BSP, can
     see when other service providers sign off on that BSP. This will be available in
     mid January 2012. The sharing of plans helps services to work together to
     improve outcomes for individuals.
