Interdepartmental Service Agreements (ISAs)

Interdepartmental Service Agreements (ISAs) are contract documents required when Commonwealth Department awards grant funding to another Commonwealth Department (Community Colleges and County Sherriff Departments and MA state agencies).

To ensure allowable fund use, the grantee must obtain approval by the program office. All grants must be submitted in EdGrants, including proposed budget line items, prior to the Grants Management office beginning the ISA process with the entity receiving the grant funds.

Amending the grant or the ISA must start with the program office overseeing the grant funds.


Crosswalks — the crosswalk tools are designed to assist in mapping the EdGrants budget against the proper ISA subsidiaries.
