Under a designation agreement with the Operational Services Division, the commonwealth has signed a contract with Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (Esri) for a Master Service Agreement (MSA or “state blanket contract”). Under this MSA, all political subdivisions of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (including, but not limited to, cities and towns and state agencies) can purchase GIS software products and GIS-related services from Esri.
When Massachusetts government agencies request a quote for software or services from Esri, they will receive a correct quote if they request pricing under MSA "ITS65DesignatedITD".
Before using this contract, download and read the "ITS65 User Guide" (you will find this in the “Agency Attachments” area on the contract page; the actual link includes a month and year added to the end of the name listed).
If you have any questions about the contract or about pricing NOT covered by documents available on the contract page, please contact Neil MacGaffey, Director of MassGIS.
