The Department of Health seeks the services of an organisation to develop and implement a self-reporting survey of facilities that hold or handle poliovirus risk materials.  The facilities to be surveyed includes all laboratories that may handle risk materials such as; human faecal and respiratory samples, environmental sewage/water samples and specimens from animals used in polio research.  This includes facilities that could be collecting, handling or storing such materials for non-polio related work, in a time or location (including individuals moving from affected areas). The survey is to be based on, and promote awareness of, the WHO’s Guidance for Non-Poliovirus Facilities to minimize risk of sample collections potentially infectious for Polioviruses (PIM Guidance).  The PIM Guidance sets out the requirements for all countries to complete a national inventory of poliovirus potentially infectious materials as part of the pre-containment stage of the WHO’s global eradication of polio plan. The organisation will also be required to prepare a detailed report on the survey for eventual submission by Australia to the WHO.
