Memorandum of Understanding

Space requests may result in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) being created to document the formal agreement for space use between two or more departments for a specific period of time.

As the MOU is approaching expiration, the following steps will be taken to request an expiration or extension of the original MOU:

  1. The Space Administration team will identify MOUs that will expire within the next six months.
  2. An email will be sent to the facility manager and requestor indicating the expiration is approaching. Additional information related to space usage and possible employee work styles will be evaluated.
  3. Department will review the email and make a decision:
    • If the decision is to expire the MOU at the end of the agreement, the requestor will respond to the email indicating the request will be terminated.
    • If the decision is to extend the MOU at the end of the agreement, the requestor will need to submit a new space request, which could take up to six months to complete.
