The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has developed a technical request tool for National designated entities (NDE)
The technical assistant (TA) request tool is intended to support NDEs in pre-screening TA requests against the CTCN assessment framework. The framework includes CTCN balancing principles, prioritization criteria, and alignment with other UNFCCC mechanisms.

How to use the tool
- To adapt the tool to NDE circumstances, each the NDE may open the NATIONAL ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK spread sheet and right click on the tab at the bottom left corner of the page, and then choose the unhide option. This will show various options of hidden spreadsheets that have been hidden to keep the workplace tidy.
- For each aspect of the assessment, the hidden spreadsheet may be unhidden and then modified according to country circumstances and then hidden again. All the hidden worksheets will have to be updated in turn to avoid confusion that would arise if all the spreadsheets were to be opened at the same time.
- The CTCN ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK need not be modified as these are standard and were obtained from the NDE manual.
- The NDE may also change the weights and how the calculations are conducted, depending on country circumstance.
