After enabling Off-Cycle Rewards, even all permissions mentioned in the admin guide were provided, these items are not available on Miscellaneous Permissions: Spot Award, Spot Award Program and Spot Award Budget/EC. (Reference: Off-Cycle Rewards Admin Guide, on page 8)
Reproducing the Issue
Admin Center > Permission Role Detail > System Admin > Miscellaneous Permissions > No permissions available for Spot Awards
