Businesses who are (1) registered and operating in Singapore, (2) have a minimum of 30% local shareholding, and (3) be in a financially viable position to start and complete the DPTM certification, may apply for the EDG via ESG’s website at www.enterprisesg.gov.sg/financial-assistance/grants/for-local-companies/enterprise-development-grant/apply/pre-application.
Funding Support for Social Service Organisations
IMDA has partnered with the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) to provide funding support to social service organisations (SSO) for their DPTM certification through the NCSS Organisational Development Grant (ODG).
SSOs who are (1) NCSS members, or (2) MSF-funded, can apply for the ODG online via NCSS’ Funds Application System (FAS). For more details on the ODG and access to the FAS, SSOs can visit NCSS’ website at www.ncss.gov.sg/Grants-Search/VCF-ODG-Organisational-Development.
Professional Consultancy Services
Prior to applying for the DPTM certification, an organisation may wish to engage professional consultancy services to prepare them for DPTM certification. The PDPC’s list of Data Protection Service Providers provides a basic directory of the data protection services available in Singapore (www.pdpc.gov.sg/Organisations/Help-for-Organisations/List-of-Data-Protection-Service-Providers).
