In 2017 EISA, working with Democracy Reporting International (DRI), headed the Projet de Renforcement de l'Observation Citoyenne des Elections au Congo (PROCEC) and also supported Synergie des Missions d'Observation Citoyenne des Elections (SYMOCEL), a network set up on 1 March 2016 by ten civil society organisations. Towards the end of 2017 EISA conducted an all-inclusive internal evaluation of the PROCEC project, gaining valuable insights and feedback. EISA was invited by the European Union to submit a further proposal. EISA continued its support for SYMOCEL in 2018 and again in 2019.

SYMOCEL, which focuses on the election cycle, aims to enhance the abilities and actions of member organisations to provide citizens with a coherent means of improving the credibility of the Congolese electoral process and collecting, analysing and providing information relating to all electoral operations and activities. EISA support involves capacity building to observe and analyse all the technical aspects of an electoral process, particularly at the provincial level. EISA works with 12 CSOs supporting election observation, 11 of which fall under the SYMOCEL umbrella.
