In this chapter, I seek to re-engage debate concerning the presence and role of marketisation in the delivery of public services. Drawing on the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), I draw on the existing debates to assess how marketisation could affect social enterprises working into the NDIS, a quasi-market launched by the federal government in Australia. The NDIS could provide capacity building opportunities for the social enterprise sector. With this in mind, I use marketisation debates to examine the different hurdles that may present themselves, especially for social enterprises, as the scheme is implemented in the coming years.
