The Technical Assistance (TA) allocation for the ERDF Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme for Northern Ireland is €12.321m. The TA budget has been determined on the basis of experience gained by DfE (formerly DETI) in managing and implementing the 2007-13 ERDF Programme and also an analysis of the support required to efficiently and effectively implement the 2014-20 Programme. The TA budget has been allocated to the relevant bodies to cover costs associated with Programme administration i.e. staffing, audit and verification, communications, and to the development and maintenance of the Programme website.
