Technical Assistance - ESF

Programme description

The operational programme "Technical Assistance" will support the implementation of the ESF both at regional and national level, as well as the Youth Employment Initiative. It will ensure proper implementation of the ESF throughout the complete management cycle - preparation, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of certification and payment and control and audit. This overall objective will be developed through the three specific objectives:

  1. Achieving a management quality control to enable the objectives of the ESF in Spain, ensuring adequate support and follow-up to the various Operational Programmes.

  2. Conduct studies and quality assessments to measure efficiency, effectiveness and impact of ESF Operational Programmes and to improve the co-financed actions.

  3. Ensure adequate dissemination and impact of the actions of the ESF through the development of information and communication measures, networking and exchange of best practices and transfer of results.

The Technical Assistance Operational Programme 2014-2020 has a financial allocation of €49 million, of which €35 million come from the EU budget. This amount is significantly higher than what was available for such purposes in previous programming periods.
