How does the EMS 2014 Program Work?

Under the EMS program, a special BCI fund subsidizes the cost which a beneficiary has to pay for acquiring a BCI Certification or procuring a BCI Advisory or Research service.

  1. Example 1: Subsidy for Item S1: Professional Certification Fee
    A world-bank funded consortium in Nigeria qualifying under the BCI EMS program intends to certify 1000 finance & accounting agents. The standard Certification fee for these candidates payable to BCI is USD 100000.00 USD. After the EMS application is approved by the Outsourcing Industry Development Committee (OICD), 30% of this fee – USD 30000.00 – is paid by the OID Fund to BCI Professional Certifications group and only USD 70000.00 is paid by the consortium.
  2. Example 2: Subsidy for Item S2: Enterprise Certification Project Costs
    A Government-funded initiative by the ICT Board in Kenya intends to get 10 Call Centers BTMQ‌® certified by BCI. If a typical BTMQ‌® Certification Project costs USD 40000.00, the government has to invest USD 400000.00 (for 10 companies). However, after the EMS application is approved by the Outsourcing Industry Development Committee (OICD), 30% of this cost – USD 120000.00 – is paid by the OID Fund to BCI Enterprise Services Group and only USD 280000.00 is actually invested by the government.
  3. Example 3: Subsidy for Item S3: Advisory Services Costs
    The ICT Board of Ghana (GASSCOM) contracts with the BCI Government Advisory Services Group to offer advisory and consulting for the development of BPO Talent Development Framework and Strategy for the country. If typically, this project costs USD 2.0 million, the EMS subsidy reduces the government outgo to only USD 1.4 million as, after the EMS application is approved by the Outsourcing Industry Development Committee (OICD), USD 600000.00 (30% of the project cost) is paid by the OID Fund to BCI Government Advisory Services Group.
  4. Example 4: Subsidy for Item S4: Industry Research Project Costs
    The ICT Board of Sri Lanka (SLASSCOM) asks the BCI Industry Research Services Group to profile and footprint the nation’s BPO human talent resources. If typically, this project costs USD 1.0 million, the EMS subsidy reduces the government outgo to only USD 700000.0 as, after the EMS application is approved by the Outsourcing Industry Development Committee (OICD), USD 30000.00 (30% of the project cost) is paid by the OID Fund to BCI Industry Research Services Group.
  5. Example 5: Subsidy for Item S5: Partnership License Fee
    A training company in Vietnam takes the BCI CTP License. It has to pay USD 30000.00 as License Fee. However, if this company’s application for th subsidy is approved by the Outsourcing Industry Development Committee (OICD), this company has to pay only USD 22500.00 only as USD 7500.00 (25% of the License fee) is shared by the OID Fund.
