Memoranda of understanding and other business contracts
Memoranda of understanding
ANR frequently collaborates with external (non-UC) agencies to provide programs and services in the furtherance of ANR’s mission. As well, ANR makes collaborative agreements internal to the university (such as between ANR and a campus), and internal to ANR (such as between a regional office and a statewide program). Memoranda of understanding (MOUs) get projects off to a great start by clarifying roles and relationships; then serving as a management tool to keep the project running smoothly.
APBC administers MOUs in as flexible a manner as possible as such agreements should support ANR’s programs; not impede them. If you have questions and/or are experiencing any administrative difficulty with an MOU, please let us know.
For UCCE/County MOU Templates contact Ryan Harms at (510) 987-0696 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request this template
