Agreements between local governments and the Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging (CSDRA) are exempt from the provisions of Chapter 30b, the Uniform Procurement Act, since the University of Massachusetts is an instrumentality of the Commonwealth. Municipalities may negotiate a scope of services and a price with CSDRA directly, saving both time and money.
Similarly, Massachusetts state agencies may enter into Interagency Service Agreements with the CSDRA.
