Team Building, Agile Communication & Publicity The correct usage of Technical Assistance (TA) is a key to ensure your Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) programmes are running smoothly. With the recently amended “Omnibus” regulation, the use of Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) is extended. In addition, the European Commission emphasises the high importance of including indicators to measure performance. TA managers need also to develop further their soft skills.
