Infocomm Media (ICM) vendors play a key role in enabling enterprises with digital capabilities that will help them grow and reap productivity gains.
IMDA reaches out to ICM vendors through our Monthly ICM Vendor Briefings. At these sessions, we share about the SMEs Go Digital programme and how you can apply for pre-approval of your digital solution under the programme.
- (UPDATED!) The checklists for Generic and Early Childhood have been updated with a new solution category. Please refer to the table below and download the latest checklists for more information.
- (NEW!) The checklist for Healthcare (Community Care) is now available. Please refer to the table below for more information.
- The checklists for Advanced Manufacturing and Estate Agency are now available. Please refer to the table below for more information.
As an alternative to physical meetings during the COVID-19 situation, ICM vendors can view a video recording of a past Vendor Briefing on SGTech’s website. Once done, you simply need to answer 3 MCQ questions, and accept an undertaking that you have watched the video in full. ICM vendors may then proceed with the submission as guided by instructions on sgd.org.sg.
Who is it for
Vendors with ready ICM digital solutions that are sector-specific or that cut across various sectors.
Pre-approved solutions are assessed by IMDA to be effective, market-tested and cost-effective. They may be eligible to be considered for the various Government incentive support.
For solution categories that can be eligible for grant support such as Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG), please refer to GoBusiness Gov Assist.
How to apply
To be pre-approved under the programme, you will be evaluated on capacity and capability; as well as whether your solution meets the requirements of target sectors.
ICM vendors can download and complete the Vendor Self-Assessment Checklist for the following sectors, to determine if your digital solution is eligible for pre-approval under the programme.
