What is SPOC and how do I comply?

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. The order allows each state to designate an entity or single point of contact (SPOC) to perform this function. The Office of Grant Procurement, Coordination and Management (also referred to as Grants Management) has been designated the single point of contact (SPOC) for Nevada state agencies submitting or receiving federal grants and for all grant-related SPOC inquiries statewide.

    What is the benefit of SPOC?

    As the competition for available federal dollars becomes more vigorous, it is critical for Nevada to be a strong contender. Pre-flighting proposals through the Nevada SPOC can help provide that competitive edge. Nevada state agencies must also have a letter of support from a specific agency (i.e. DHHS) and the SPOC can eliminate any duplicate efforts by public agencies for specific grants that may only allow one state agency to submit.

      State of Nevada Policy Directive

      Pursuant to NRS 232.225, all state agencies are required to inform the Department of Administration, Office of Grant Procurement, Coordination and Management of any grant a State agency applies for, receives, or is not approved for.
