A point of contact (POC) or single point of contact (SPOC) is a person or a department serving as the coordinator or focal point of information concerning an activity or program. A POC is used in many cases where information is time-sensitive and accuracy is important. For example, they are used in Whois databases.[1]

The term can also be used to identify the place where a person has been contacted by human or alien forces.
