EOI Response Form Submission FAQs

  1. All s90 community pharmacies who were registered in the PPA Portal were sent an email on Friday 5 February 2021 with a personalised link to the EOI response form. The email was sent to the contact email address of the Main Authorised Person for the pharmacy.

    The Expression of Interest submission process closed at midnight (AEDT) on 19 February 2021. Submissions can no longer be accepted.

    If your pharmacy was not open during the EOI response period, please refer to Question 8 in the Eligibility for Application FAQs.

  2. The Expression of Interest submission process closed at midnight (AEDT) on 19 February 2021. Submissions can no longer be accepted.

    If your pharmacy was not open during the EOI response period, please refer to Question 8 in the Eligibility for Application FAQs.

  3. No, all EOI responses will only be assessed after the EOI submission closing date. Therefore, please take the time to properly read and answer all questions in the EOI response form correctly.

  4. The Expression of Interest submission process closed at midnight (AEDT) on 19 February 2021. Submissions can no longer be edited.

  5. Yes, please contact the PPA Support Centre at support@ppaonline.com.au to progress this

  6. No. Each unique link is personalised to one pharmacy and will only allow for a single completion.

  7. No. The form will save your information as you go. You will then be able to close the form and continue it later by clicking on the link you were emailed. Please ensure that you remember to return and submit your form by the EOI closing date of Friday 19 February 2021.

  8. This will depend on the answers provided by each individual pharmacy. The form will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete. An EOI Response Form User Guide is available for download here to provide additional guidance on using the online response form. 

  9. The Expression of Interest submission process closed on 19 February 2021. Submissions can no longer be accepted.

  10. No. Each store will need to have its own EOI response. The Main Authorised person (pharmacy owner) will receive an email containing separate personalised links for each one of your stores.  This means if you own three pharmacies and have the same contact email address registered in the Portal for these pharmacies you will receive one email containing three links. Each separate link will take you to a response form for that pharmacy and will contain pre-filled information for that store.

  11. The Australian Government’s EOI document available here and these FAQs outline all the information currently available. Whilst it is appreciated that the more information you can receive on logistics (delivery cycles, vaccine vial volumes, the national booking system etc) the more it will inform your EOI, both the Department of Health and the PPA are unlikely to be able to provide further detail at this stage. We will continue to provide information as it becomes available. 

    Questions regarding the EOI process can be directed the PPA at support@ppaonline.com.au .

  12. At this point, while it is not mandatory to have medical equipment on hand or nearby (e.g. defibrillators in shopping centres), your answers to these questions will factor into the assessment of your response.  Answering no to these questions will not remove your ability to participate.  However, it may mean that you do not participate in the initial roll out.

  13. Answer yes if any of your customers are members of the groups.
