Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a legal document that describes the common purposes of two or more parties. An MOU is usually less complicated and less detailed than an MoA, though it still provides a framework and set of rules to guide the parties in carrying a project or working arrangement.

Memorandum of Agreement (MoA)

A Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) is a binding written negotiated agreement between two or more parties, particularly one which is enforceable by law. It puts an obligation on each party to do or not do something, and it also gives each party the legal right to request the performance of whatever the other parties promised to them. In order to be valid, all parties must be legally competent to enter a contract, the mutuality of the agreement and of its obligations must exist, and there must be meticulous consideration.

Choosing between an MoU and MoA

If you do not wish to be bound by the document until a formal Agreement comes into force, you should use a Memorandum of Understanding.  If you wish to be bound by this document, we recommend that you enter into a Memorandum of Agreement.
