Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)/Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOA) or Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is a nonbinding document between a federal laboratory and a private sector organization that sets out in very broad terms a plan for the parties to coordinate efforts on a project of mutual interest. Proprietary information is not discussed under an MOA/MOU, and the transfer of funds or resources is not permitted. An MOA/MOU is often a precursor to a comprehensive technology transfer agreement.
