In October 2012, 11 CPA firms embarked on a Pilot Productivity Studies by ISCA together with Oriel Management Consulting Pte Ltd, an ICV approved consultant, which allows participating companies to tap onto SPRING Singapore’s Innovation & Capability Voucher (ICV) of $5,000 to defray their consultancy fees.
The firms benefitted from productivity diagnostics and recommendations by the consultant based on SPRING’s Integrated Management of Productivity Activities (IMPACT) framework, while an industry study identifying common challenges and industry best practices together with consolidated productivity indicators at organisational/management, activity and operational levels has been prepared based on the aggregation of the individual company study.
The final report was published in February 2013 and you can click here to download.
Through outreach events, ISCA has also facilitated the adoption of ICV (Productivity) for professional accountants in business keen to embark on productivity projects for their firms.

Each SMP may apply for two vouchers per area, i.e. a total of 8 vouchers. Each voucher from SPRING is worth S$5,000 and can be used to pay for consultancy services at participating service providers. Areas include Productivity, Innovation, Human Resources Development and Financial Management.
