UEM Edgenta has been supporting UEM Group’s VDP, an initiative with the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (“MITI”). The VDP aims to create and develop competitive Bumiputera entrepreneurs in the construction, property development and expressway related supply chain. Our pool of registered vendors spans many categories including facilities management, infrastructure, construction and consultancy.
UEM Edgenta has been actively involved in UEM Group’s VDP since its official launch in June 2015. Under the VDP, we provide intervention programmes, Business Excellence (BE) workshops and consultancy to selected vendors in five structured phases. Through these training sessions, the vendors gained knowledge of the sustainable way of conducting their business as well as insights on how to address the social, environmental and ethical aspects of running a business. Upon completion, these vendors will be ready to compete in the open market.
To date, a total of 13 Bumiputera vendors has enrolled in the VDP in three batches in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The first batch consists of four vendors who successfully completed the third phase of the VDP. This vendor came first in the Category Services Sector Award by MITI.
