Technical Assistance Platform

Optimise the implementation of EU-funded TA projects

What is Technical Assistance? Well, there are multiple definitions, some of them very abstract or very technical. The bottom line is that TA is a specific service to be provision to the beneficiary in order to help him to achieve a specific objective.

If we refer to the TA implementation phase, PMC can provide  professional support for project management by assuming the responsibility of Project Director. Additionally, all  management, communication and support platforms for implementation can be offered by the PMC as a  lease for the duration of the project.

It is obvious that the use of specialised tools and platforms for managing the implementation of a TA project also creates financial advantages. Thus, in the case of a “global price” TA project, these tools will save a lot of expert-days while the amounts you bill will not depend on the number of expert-days thus generating extra profit margin. For “fee-based” TA projects, the use of such tools and platforms, in addition to driving the same expert-day economy, will optimise the costs that you will have with the backstopping team and which are included in the daily rate of key and non-key experts, thus increasing the profit margin of the project.

AS-IS/To-BE assessments, gap analysis, requirements engineering

An integrated rules mapping and change governance platform can be used to provide a granular view of the relationship between the **AS-IS** and **TO-BE** situations and the organisational entities, processes, assets and plans that they relate to. Areas requiring remediation will be recorded as risks against any “identified gap” and captured in the context of associated organisational entities, processes, locations, assets etc. This will support an ability to consolidate requirements into single bodies of work where appropriate, whilst maintaining a clear view of how each activity relates back to the “identified gap” that it has been created to address. Individual remediation plans will then be scoped, capturing details of cost components, impacts, program risks and dependencies within the platform. Then with the platform’s ability to perform dynamic scenario analysis, stakeholders will be able to efficiently review and assess the relative time, cost and risk impact of alternative investment approaches and at the same time interrogate, pivot and report information quickly and effectively.
