Board of Computing Professionals Malaysia

There are currently an initiative to establish a Board of Computing Professionals Malaysia (BCPM), which will function to accredit ICT academic programmes, as well as to promote, facilitate and regulate the profession (very much like the Board of Engineers for engineering, and the Bar Council for the legal profession, etc.). This initiative is under the purview of the Ministry of Science and Innovation (MOSTI) and led by the National ICT Human Resource Task Force under the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and within the ICT Human Capital Development Framework.

They invited all ICT practitioners and those related to the profession to participate in an on-line survey that will be open for responses from Sunday 28 Oct 2012 to Sunday 4 November 2012 (24:00). The survey aims to solicit feedback from the ICT community to determine the overall suitability and general acceptance to the proposal for the establishment of the BCPM. The survey site is avialable here.

The introduction to the survey and the instructions for filling the questionnaire will be provided at the stated site, as well as a link to another site that provides the general context to the proposal. Although we do not foresee any problem that may occur at the said site, should there be difficulties, an alternative site will be made available here.
