About the Collaboration

Why did APA choose to work with Project N95?

Since May 15, Project N95 has facilitated delivery of more than 3 million units of PPE to over 180,000 frontline workers. Project N95 has partnerships with national medical associations, including the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association; companies such as Amazon, IBM and Moody's; and charitable institutions, including the KIND Foundation and USofCare. Learn more about the partnerships here.

How do I know that this PPE is real and valid?

Project N95 has identified and vetted suppliers and manufacturers who it believes can meet expected cost, quality and delivery. Project N95 has information available here that walks you through its Supplier and Product Due Diligence Process.

What steps does Project N95 take to ensure its PPE is safe?

Safety is Project N95’s primary concern, and it vets all suppliers and products via a rigorous process. Learn more about the process here.

The vetting process includes:

  1. Checking the DUNS number and using Moody's Know Your Supplier Portal to identify any red flags.
  2. Guaranteeing that all items meet Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards, which Project N95 regularly updates for any new emergency use authorizations. Here's more information about regulatory standards.
  3. Looking at FDA registrations, clearances and product testing to make sure each product meets Project N95's requirements.
  4. Checking references for suppliers to ensure they have previously delivered safe, high-quality goods.
  5. Doing an additional quality assurance check on the entire process before declaring a supplier officially vetted.

How do I know that products are priced fairly?

Project N95 works closely with its suppliers to ensure pricing is reasonable, accessible and within the market range. In addition to its competitive prices, Project N95 thoroughly vets every product it offers to ensure the products meet all requirements.

Will APA offer more PPE in the future?

The Project N95 marketplace is available 24/7. You no longer have to wait for group buying opportunities or worry about missing order deadlines.

Does APA profit from PPE sales?

APA is not profiting from the sales of PPE through Project N95.

Ordering

Will PPE run out of stock?

We do not currently expect that stock will run out. Project N95's suppliers for the items offered to APA members have committed to having stock available. In the unlikely case that a product’s stock runs out, it will not appear as available on the website.

How do I indicate my organization’s tax-exempt status?

If you would like to register as tax exempt, please submit your organization's tax exemption documentation to frontline@projectn95.org.

What do I receive after placing an order?

After placing an order, you will receive an emailed confirmation notice from Project N95 with order details, the estimated shipping date and contact information for Project N95's support team. The notice includes a link to your account, which includes details of your order history such as product quantities, payment method, shipping address, shipping charges, and taxes.

I placed an order during a previous special offer. What’s the easiest way to order more product available during this offer?

To avoid completing an additional registration form, please access Project N95 at shop.projectn95.org. If you do not have a password setup with Project N95, create a new password with the same email you previously used to make a purchase. Follow the instructions for "Set/reset my password" to gain access to the site.

How do I access my order receipt?

The order confirmation email you received after purchasing a product includes an order receipt. You may log back into shop.projectn95.org at any time and check your account to review your order.

When will I receive my PPE?

All orders placed through the order will ship on a rolling basis. Members generally receive PPE orders via UPS ground within 5–7 business days. Orders to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico will experience longer shipping times. UPS is making every effort to adhere to shipping standards, but due to current circumstances, shipping timelines may vary.
