CONCERN WAS expressed over a lack of communication from the ICE on funding of Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) at a South Wales Association Presidential visit last week.
Earlier this year, NCE reported that the ICE's planned axing of funds to the three PEI offices it had set up had been staved off until the end of the year (NCE 18 February).
Wales PEI chair Gerry Rogers expressed disappointment at last week's meeting that the ICE had not communicated any information on the matter.
He said that the Wales PEI was probably the most successful branch in the UK. 'At inception it was agreed that there would be funding for three years and here we are, only half way into the period, and the ICE proposed to withdraw.'
The President said that the ICE was reconsidering funding of the PEIs.
