Non-Agency Sponsored Training 
Expense (NASTE) Request

Click on your region below to submit a NASTE request:


These forms are for SPD staff use only.  Complete this form anytime you wish to attend a training program that is sponsored by an organization OTHER than the State Public Defender's Office (SPD). This form enables you to ask for SPD to pay expenses (e.g., registration fee, lodging, mileage, meals) associated with attending non-agency training programs. 

How does the Google NASTE request form work?

If you'd like to attend a non-agency training program, click on your region.  You'll be automatically directed to a Google Form. Fill it out and submit.  An email will be automatically sent to both the RAM and ROA for that region for approval.

How does the RAM or ROA approve or deny the NASTE request?

To approve (or deny) the request, the RAM or ROA will simply "reply" to the email with the approval decision. If only a part of the request is approved for funding (eg: approval for the cost of the training event, but not housing or meals), those details will be outlined in the reply email. The reply email will be automatically directed back you. 

What does the staff member do when they get the reply email from the RAM or ROA?

When you recieve the reply email, forward it to Gail Gomach ( in Admin who will make the arrangements (registration, hotel reservation, etc) and then send you a confirmation.

Who can I call if I have questions about this new process or the Google Form?

Please contact Justin Heim in the Training Division with any questions.
