The Electoral Commission is in regular dialogue with all Electoral Registration Officers (EROs) and their staff as part of their performance monitoring work to support the effective delivery of the transition to IER.

While electoral management software (EMS) is one of the areas routinely covered in the course of these discussions and correspondence, contact from EROs and their staff on EMS supplier issues is managed by the Cabinet Office. This reflects the joint working agreement in place between the Commission and the Cabinet Office relating to the provision of guidance and support to EROs and their staff throughout the period of the transition.
