Budget Execution
Memorandums of Agreement /
Memorandums of Understanding

The National Weather Service (NWS) currently engages in about 500 agreements with other organizations. These agreements enable the NWS to obtain and provide goods and services, as well as to coordinate complementary activities with other organizations in support of the agency's mission. As such, agreements must be carefully drafted and implemented to ensure the effective, efficient and legal use of NWS resources.

Responsibility for the effective, efficient and legal use of an agreement rests primarily with the Financial Management Centers (FMCs) which execute the agreement. To assist the FMCs with this responsibility, the Office of the Chief Financial Officer has prepared Guidance for Effective Agreements: An Overview.

MOA/MOUs often result in cost calculations for labor and other expenses. Use the attached form to complete the calculations. Remember to obtain the current year support rates from your budget staff and include on the form as indicated.
