Letters of Intent No Longer a Requirement for Pre-Approval of Solutions under SMEs Go Digital Programme


Good news for ICT solution providers preparing their submissions for pre-approval under the SMEs Go Digital Programme. IMDA has removed the requirement to include Letters of Intent from five prospects.

Through SGTech’s involvement in the SMEs Go Digital Programme since May 2019, solution providers had consistently expressed that this requirement was putting new, innovative solutions at a disadvantage. For many SMEs, the availability of grants is one of the top criteria used in selecting solutions. With no grant in sight, few companies were willing to commit to a purchase.

Seeing this challenge faced by the community, SGTech voiced the industry's concern to IMDA. We are grateful that IMDA responded positively with the removal of this onboarding requirement of the programme. Solution providers are no longer required to provide five Letters of Intent as part of the Vendor Self-Assessment Checklist submission.
