The Interdepartmental Service Agreement (ISA) is the contract that documents the business agreement (joint venture) between two Commonwealth departments within any branch of state government.
The ISA must comply with funding language in any appropriation act (General Appropriations Act, interim budget, or supplemental budget) funding the ISA, as well as all applicable general and special state or federal laws, regulations, policies, and procedures.
