Col. Kevin Kippie, 7th Bomb Wing vice commander, and City of Abilene Mayor Anthony Williams signed an Intergovernmental Support Agreement (IGSA) between Dyess Air Force Base and the City of Abilene, Texas, Oct. 25, 2022.

An IGSA is an agreement between a Department of the Air Force installation and a state or local government to provide, receive, or share installation support services.

“The IGSA strengthens our partnership with Dyess AFB, and is a tangible example of Abilene’s continued support for Dyess,” said Williams. “Our entire community benefits from this outstanding partnership, and the wonderful work of the Military Affairs Committee in coordinating it.”

The IGSA between Abilene and Dyess AFB will allow the base a maximum ceiling of $15 million for base sustainment services also marking it as the second blanketed IGSA ever in the U.S. Air Force.  The agreement will begin starting the day of the last party’s signature then continuing for the next 10 years. The money could go to improving civil engineering and logistics such as street repair, grounds maintenance and water supply. The IGSA will additionally offer force support services such as custodial, laundry and an auto hobby shop partnership.

“We appreciate our outstanding community partners for their continued support,” said Kippie. “This agreement goes to show just how dedicated the City of Abilene is to improve not only the base, but also the lives of our Airmen and families.”
