One of the services at the core of GPTEC’s mission is to provide technical assistance to its tribal and other partners, to the extent that we are able, within key areas of public health practice.
"Technical assistance" (TA) encompasses a professional relationship between GPTEC and the individual/program/organization requesting assistance. GPTEC will work to understand and respond to the needs of those making the request. Technical assistance will necessarily involve a commitment on the part of both GPTEC staff (most frequently in terms of time) and the individual/program/organization making the request.
GPTEC can offer a variety of different kinds of technical assistance; the exact nature of the technical assistance provided will depend in turn upon the nature of the request and will be worked out between GPTEC staff and the individual/program/organization making the request.
