On 26th November 2015, we were invited for a meeting with PSMB with regards to the recent 1MalaysiaGRIP Fund application by training providers.
Dato CM Vicks himself chaired the meeting. Among many things, he shared with us some of the teething problems that they faced, statistics of the Fund, the future plans and steps taken to address some of the current issues faced in the Phase 2 of the program.
For organisation that were not successful, the good news is that PSMB is considering an appeal process for participants who had encountered challenges during the online submission process and had been unsuccessful. But this appeal must be made through their respective association. As such MAPS is ready to convey all members appeal.
Please bear in mind, that this is an appeal process and it is again subject to final decision by PSMB. We also suggest that you place urgency in this matter as Dato Vicks stressed that they are looking out for efficiency and speed - so with limited funds allocated for the appeal, it will be qualification and on a first come basis.
In view of the urgency of the situation, we will not wait to compile your request but will pass it on immediately (on an individual basis) on receipt of your appeal.
Please be in touch with me, if you would like to appeal, and I will advice further on what needs to be done.
Thank you very much.
