With the aim of guaranteeing the large use of the developed-tools and the sustainability of the project activities, the Erasmus+ co-financed POINTS Project has produced a “Booklet on POINTS project tools for sport organisations”. This Booklet gathered all relevant information on the two mains outcomes of the POINTS Project, to encourage other European and national organisations to strengthen their integrity policies and strategies by using the following tools:  

1-The Guidelines for Single Points of Contact for Integrity in Sport;  

2-SIGGS 2.0 Self-evaluation tool for Good Governance in Sport organisation.  

After a general introduction on the POINTS project, the Booklet presents the key elements of the Guidelines for Single Points of Contact for Integrity in Sport, developed by the project consortium. Four main areas are covered in the document: 

  • What is a Single Point of Contact for Integrity in Sport? 
  • Why should my organisation nominate a SPOC? 
  • What are the responsibilities of a SPOC? How can my organisation set up a SPOC? 
  • The second part of the document is focusing on the SIGGS 2.0 self-assessment tool on Good Governance in Sport, freely available for all sport organisations following this link http://siggsapp.novagov.com/.  

The Booklet describes the following elements: 

  • Why is Good Governance important for sport organisations? 
  • What is the SIGGS self-evaluation doing for improving governance of sport organisations? 
  • Why should my organisation use this tool? 
  • How can my organisation use this tool? 

The Booklet – and the Guidelines – are available for all sport organisations – NOCs, sport confederations, European federations and national federations – on the website of the POINTS project.   

As a reminder, the POINTS project started in January 2018 and will end in June 2021. The consortium is composed of the EOC EU Office (project leader) and 17 partners including 11 NOCs (Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, France, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Italy, Portugal, Germany and Croatia), 3 European federations (European Athletics, European Volleyball Confederation and FIBA Europe) and 3 specialised organisations (INTERPOL, Sport & Recreation Alliance UK and EOSE). The IOC, through its Ethics and Compliance Office, is an associated partner of the project.
