Hi, Peggy.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a quasi-contractual legal
document, and if you've never written one before, you're probably
going to want to get assistance from local legal counsel on format and
content. I know from previous defense contracting experience (long
ago) that government entities often use MOUs to document relationships
with universities or other research resources--which is why, I'm
guessing, you've been asked to write one.

There is probably a standard or approved format for MOUs at your site,
and in my opinion you are probably better advised to try to chase that
down locally than to use someone else's format.
