PECS activities are supported by the PECS International Programme Office (PECS-IPO). From 2019 PECS has adopted a nodal and regional coordination structure. The current central node of the regionally distributed Secretariat is hosted by the CST at Stellenbosch University.
The PECS-IPO is in charge of implementing the vision and recommendations of the PECS-SC. The IPO is responsible for engaging the international community, establishing networks and coordinating activities. It also communicates the results of PECS activities through reports, the PECS website and publications.
