System Overview

The Electronic Intergovernmental Agreement (eIGA) system manages the interaction between a facility provider and an agency with detention service needs leading to an IGA. It provides a reliable and justifiable structure for the negotiation process. eIGA automates the application process by collecting essential information from facility owners. To address the projection and budgeting challenges, the Office of the Federal Detention Trustee (OFDT) has developed a core rate concept that establishes a baseline for negotiating a fixed rate IGA.

To read more about eIGA, please view the brochure Introducing eIGA.
