Since its inclusion in the National Defense Authorization Act three years ago, Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSA) have generated strong interest in allowing the negotiation of shared service agreements among defense communities, the military and the private sector. Since then, there have been plenty of challenges and false starts, as communities and DoD worked to implement this authority. This fall, the City of Monterey, CA and the US Army created a process providing a template for future agreements. The first IGSA is set to be signed between the City of Monterey and the U.S. Army, opening the door for defense communities and installations across the nation to follow suit.
