A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlines an agreement between two collaborating bodies in order to identify the working relationships and guidelines that exist between them. The MOU describes the common understandings, the support that will be provided and the rights and responsibilities of each involved entity.
An MOU can be useful for documenting expectations amongst partners or for specifying the roles of advisory groups.
