The Intergovernmental Review Process
The Intergovernmental Review Process of federal programs, referred to as the State Single Point of Contact or SPOC, was created by Executive Order 12372 to foster intergovernmental partnerships. The order allows each state to designate an entity or single point of contact (SPOC) to perform this function. Washington DC's designation is the Executive Office of the Mayor, Office of the City Administrator, Grants Management Division.
