Reading Time: 1 minute

In an attempt to be responsive to current requests from the national business community, the Ministry of Planning and Development and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) wish to advise the Service Sector that the Call for Proposals deadline for the Skills For Global Services has now been extended. The original deadline was advertised as Friday June 23rd 2017 at 4:00 pm (local time).

The new deadline for submission of proposals is Friday June 30th 2017 at 4:00pm.

Please note that only firms that have submitted their Letter of Interest as of Friday June 16th 2017 are invited to submit proposals.

We also wish to remind applicants that all submissions must still be hand-delivered to the Global Services Internationalization (GSI) Hub at 25 Ramsaran Street, Chaguanas, by the new deadline. Proposals submitted after Friday June 30th at 4:00 pm will not be accepted.

Once submitted, proposals will be evaluated through a widely disseminated and transparent process, paneled by local and international experts in the ITeS field.

All businesses in the service sector whose core functions are IT-enabled are invited to participate, and successful submissions will receive public funding of up to TTD$475,000.00. Applicants may come from an array of industries – ranging from animation, computer design, health and finance.
