Under section 15-7 of the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act), an approved provider who has been granted a provisional allocation of places may apply to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Ageing for an extension of the provisional allocation period.
The provisional allocation period is the period of 2 years after the day on which the allocation is made. For community and flexible aged care, the period of extension, if approved, is 12 months. For residential aged care places, the period of extension is also 12 months unless the Secretary is satisfied that the applicant meets the criteria in the Allocation Principles 1997 (the Principles) for increasing or decreasing the period of extension.
The questions in this form reflect the provisions of section 15-7 of the Act and Part 6 of the Principles.
Applications must be made at least 60 days before the end of the provisional allocation period, unless a shorter period is allowed by the Secretary. If you need to lodge this application in less than the 60 day period, you should discuss this with the Department and complete Attachment 1.
Please note that if the extension to the provisional allocation period will result in any change to a condition to which the allocation is subject, the approved provider must lodge an ‘Application for a variation of the provisional allocation of places’ prior to this form.
Signatories to this application must be legally authorised to sign for and on behalf of the approved provider and must be key personnel of the provider.
