1 Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSAs)
Information Briefing For ADC Boot Camp 5 August 2013 Ivan G. Bolden Privatization and Partnerships Division

2 NDAA 13, Section 331 H 4310 NDAA 2013, authorizes military installations to enter into Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSA) with State and Local Governments to provide, receive, or share installation-support services if determined be in the best interests of the Department. IGSA (aka Public-Public Partnerships) characteristics include: Ability to sole-source with public entities May use wage grades normally paid by State or local governments - Enhancing mission effectiveness Creating efficiencies and economies of scale by reducing costs - Army or municipality must already provide the service Excludes security guard or fire-fighting functions Partnership agreements not to exceed 5 years 2

3 Multi-phased Intergovernmental Agreement (IGSA) Strategy
Phase I: ASA IE&E issued IGSA directive (24 Jun 13) Phase II: ACSIM issues EXORD to ACOM/DRUs EXORD issued as interim Army IGSA guidance Phase III: ACSIM evaluates universe of IGSAs Initiates Pilots Develops lessons learned Phase IV: Codify and promulgate IGSA Guidance 3

4 Phase I: Issue IGSA Directive
Directive signed by ASA IE&E on 24 Jun 13 Installations to “seek out public-public partnerships to maximize cost savings and cost avoidance through shared services” Every installation to “evaluate opportunities and dialogue with State and local governments to identify opportunities for shared services”

5 Benchmark existing partnerships and those currently “in the pipeline”
Phase II: Issue EXORD Benchmark existing partnerships and those currently “in the pipeline” Establish benchmark for partnerships existing prior to NDAA 13 Assess for possible Best Practices & identify functional categories Identify mechanisms used to establish partnerships (e.g., MOUs, MOAs) Initiate pilots to assess various scenarios/challenges to implementing IGSAs Pilot sites chosen from IMCOM, AMC, MEDCOM, USAR, ARNG Direct coordination through legal, contracting & small business POCs during proposal development 5

6 Phase III: Evaluate IGSAs (Partnerships)
ACSIM evaluates universe of existing IGSAs Initiates pilots Develops lessons learned ACSIM review portfolio of pilot IGSAs at 6 and12 months after the EXORD issued Detect trends Ascertain progress Prepare joint service newsletter on IGSA Best Practices Assess conditions for delegation of partnership approval authority Consider future options for joint service, regional partnerships Develop IGSA report in response to SASC Language (anticipated) in NDAA FY14 6

7 Phase IV: Codify and Promulgate IGSA Guidance
Establish clear definitions of approval tiers Possible addition of dollar threshold values applied to approval levels Establish metrics, progress reporting, and oversight process Pending no major Legislative, Acquisition, Small Business or Finance and Accounting problems, will codify and promulgate further guidance in FY14 7

8 Challenges Ensure that there is a methodology to promote fairness in dealing with multiple communities that exist outside of each Army installation/site Ensure that all IGSAs have a solid business case analysis Ensure that Army balances the desire for efficiencies with Small Business contracting goals Per OGC, ensure that Army is protected from undue liabilities Ensure that Communities can receive payment from Army in a reasonable timeframe Ensure a common understanding of the IGSA process by local Contracting Offices and SJAs. 8

9 We will maintain close ties with other Services to share ideas
Summary To accelerate use of IGSAs, will consider maximum delegation of approval authority, when appropriate, and balance with risk We will maintain close ties with other Services to share ideas and lessons learned If changes in guidance, policy, regulation or law are required, will rely on the ARSTAF to proactively address them 9
