Technical support and resource centres

Increasingly, international development agencies find it much more efficient to award multi-year framework contracts, appointing a number of consortia as preferred suppliers of technical assistance services for specific areas of expertise.

Improving education opportunities
Improving education opportunities Through the EC Framework for Culture, Education, Employment and Social Affairs we have provided technical assistance to education projects worldwide.

We understand that short-term technical assistance can provide a unique perspective, which is often needed to solve problems in national health and education systems. We have a strong internal quality assurance scheme to ensure technical support is consistent and reflects best international practice. Due to our approaches and success rates, we have developed a strong reputation for exceptional short-term technical support.

We work closely with clients who may need a single consultant or a team of experts to address a complex problem requiring diverse technical expertise. We focus not only on the technical job, but also on the processes within which the job is situated – ensuring that it has impact. We deliver on time, and always quality control our technical support. Our clients include country governments, bilateral and multilateral development agencies, and global health initiatives.

What do we specialise in?

  • Consultancies for programmes in sectors including health and education
  • Drawing on the best international, regional and local expertise to help countries solve their most pressing development problems, we make sure our support is technically sound and responds rapidly to needs.
  • Providing our international development partners with high quality and timely technical support to plan, implement, manage and evaluate their programmes, always building on the latest available evidence.

Adding value

  • Providing 19,000 quality assured technical assistance days on over 500 projects in five years. We manage the UNAIDS Technical Support Facility for Eastern and Southern Africa which addresses demand for high quality, short-term technical assistance in planning and management to scale up the response to HIV.
  • In the past three years, Australia has provided over £1 billion in overseas development assistance in health, mainly in the Asia Pacific region. Through our management of the AusAID Health Resource Facility (HRF) we are helping to drive a more efficient return on this investment. The HRF provides AusAID staff at central and country level with high quality expertise and analysis across the full spectrum of health topics.
