SPOC was created to foster intergovernmental partnerships and strengthen federalism by relying on state and local processes for the coordination and review of proposed federal financial assistance and development.  Executive Order 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs," was issued to allow each state to designate an entity or single point of contact (SPOC) to perform this function.  Nevada's designation is the Department of Administration's, Office of Grant Procurement, Coordination and Management (Nevada Grant Office).

There are two (2) reasons to submit a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) request: 

  • Required by either NRS (applies to state) or required by Intergovernmental Review Executive Order (applies to any organizations; and
  • Coordination for improved competitiveness 

It is no secret funding is becoming more competitive.  Improving collaborations is paramount to enhancing federal funding in Nevada.  It is not enough for one agency to submit without partners; there is a great demand for cross-agency collaborations and the leveraging of ongoing activities occurring within our communities.  As the competition for available federal dollars becomes more vigorous, it is critical for Nevada to be a strong contender.  Coordinating proposals through the Nevada SPOC is not only required, in most instances, it can also improve the competitiveness of your project.  Additionally, this office can assist in connecting and developing partnerships with other agencies and non-profits to help ease financial and management burdens on all interested parties and develop a strong and more encompassing grant application.
