Under section 15-1 of the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act), an allocation of places to an approved provider takes effect when the Secretary determines that the approved provider is in a position to provide care in respect of those places. If the Secretary has not made such a determination, the allocation is taken to be a provisional allocation.
Under section 15-5 of 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 a variation of the provisional allocation.
The variation may be a reduction in the number of places to which the provisional allocation relates or a variation of the conditions to which the provisional allocation is subject under section 14-5 of the Act.
The application must be lodged before the end of the provisional allocation period, which is the period of two years after the day on which the allocation was made, unless an extension to the provisional allocation period is approved or an application for an extension is pending.
Please note that if the proposed variation will result in a need to extend the provisional allocation period, the approved provider must, under section 15-7(4), lodge an ‘Application for an extension of the provisional allocation period’ 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.
