IMDA and ESG would like to highlight and bring your kind attention to the following below:
1. Compliance to IMDA Programme Guidelines under PSG
2. Enquiries on PSG Applications on behalf of BGP applicants and submitting PSG Applications on behalf of BGP applicants
3. Vendor’s advice on changing or adding to BGP applicants’ SSIC Code
|Compliance to IMDA Programme Guidelines under PSG:It has come to our attention that a number of vendors have been promoting their PSG solutions with free incentives, such as offering free PSG non-supportable components, offering interest rebates or having financial loans tied to the pre-approved packages.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of some examples that breach the Pre-approval Letter of Appointment (LOA):
Vendors are discouraged from launching advertising promotions that bundle free PSG non-supportable components with PSG packages.
You may contact SMEs_Go_Digital@imda.gov.sg for clarifications before embarking on your advertising campaigns.
Please note Pre-Approved@SMEsGoDigital Guide Clause 3.2.6, that is part of the Pre-approval vendor LOA:
|Enquiries on PSG Applications on behalf of BGP applicants and submitting PSG Applications on behalf of BGP applicants
If there are any questions pertaining to ESG related Business Grant Portal application, please email to PSG_applications@enterprisesg.gov.sg as Enterprise Singapore would be able to provide accurate replies to all enquiries.
Below is a list of matters that IMDA is unable to assist:
In the event where vendor wishes to make further clarifications ( including application involving agencies other than ESG), vendors may write in to SMEs_Go_Digital@imda.gov.sg for assistance.
Please provide background information and communications with PSG_applications@enterprisesg.gov.sg in the email.
As per the vendor’s letter of offer, BGP vendors should not be involved in the application process and make enquiries on behalf of BGP applicants.
Vendors should not guide BGP applicants to provide standard replies to BGP application clarifications.
|Vendor’s advice on changing or adding to SME’s SSIC Code
A company’s SSIC registration should accurately reflect its line of business, and should not be amended for the purposes of obtaining grant support. This has potential fraud risk if companies falsely declare that they are from particular sectors to obtain sector specific support.
