Use Of Memorandum Of Agreement

Although MOs are rarely visible in the multilateral field, transnational air agreements are in fact soft. It`s at least as likely that your organization is at the end of a contract or is asked to sign an already designed memorandum of understanding as you will write one. Before we discuss how one of these documents will be created, we`ll look at how to read one. Step 1: Determine if you need a new agreement and, if so, what type of agreement is appropriate. For example, if an organization agreed, at the request of a funder, to act as a transfer of money to another organization that had not yet received its federal tax-exempt classification. The first organization would simply ask the funder for money at reasonable intervals and give it to the second. In such a situation, it is advisable to draw up and sign a memorandum of understanding that accurately describes how this agreement works. Two organizations can sign a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on a program. One of them, on the basis of their agreement, grants grants to set up the programme, and then the other - without whose participation the programme cannot be implemented - resigns. The first organization may then be asked to repay the grant money because it was spent on a program that never took place.

In this case, although there was no contract or exchange in the original agreement, the second organization could be legally obliged to reimburse the first organization. Or not. It would depend on the circumstances and the judge`s opinion - which is why it is a grey area. But even in international situations, MOUs are not binding. They must be linked, for example, to the sharing of space, cooperation on common goals, any organization that contributes to a common effort or agreements to serve on the boards of directors of the other. This process takes time, so plan accordingly. When you create the agreement, you should share the draft contract with the other entity before sending it for signature at the Provost/VC level. . . .
