FAQs

PSG is a program under the Environmental Services Industry Transformation Map (ES ITM) designed to augment the operational efficiency and productivity of the ES industry through technology adaptation.

PSG covers sector-specific solutions including the retail, food, logistics, precision engineering, construction, and landscaping industries.

The Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) also supports the adoption of a solution that cuts across industries, such as in areas of customer management, financial management, inventory tracking and data analytics.

Apart from that, COVID-19 business continuity solutions such as online collaboration tools, virtual meeting and telephony tools, queue management systems, and temperature screening solutions are included. These solutions are pre-scoped by various government agencies such as the National Environmental Agency (NEA), Enterprise Singapore (ESG), and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).

Charities, Institutions of Public Characters (IPCs), Religious Entities, Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO), and Government agencies and subsidiaries are not covered by this grant support.

For companies supported by ESG, they are given an annual grant cap of S$30,000 starting the 1st of April until the 31st of March of the following year.

Companies that have fully availed of their grant caps will not be eligible for assistance within the validity period of the grant cap. They can apply again in the next cycle when the grant cap is already refreshed. Companies are strongly encouraged to strategize the use of the PSG for their purchase.

Applications are processed within 4-6 weeks from the submission of all required information/documents.

Companies can apply for more than one PSG, depending on your business needs. Also, take note that the support can only be extended for one package per solution category and deployment location. You cannot apply for the same IT solution to be deployed in the same location.

Additional items can be quoted separately and make sure that whatever modification you have made to your package, you’ll also present it to IMDA for approval.

Even if we want to, we can’t. Each organization should submit its own application.
