The U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services are proud to announce the release a Sample Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Infrastructure Costs Toolkit; it is now available on the Innovation and Opportunity Network (ION) on WorkforceGPS.
Included in the Sample MOU and Infrastructure Costs Toolkit are the following components:
- Sample MOU 2017
- Sample MOU Cost Allocation and Partner Contributions – A County
- Sample MOU Cost Allocation and Partner Contributions – B County
- Sample MOU Cost Allocation and Partner Contributions – C County
- Sample MOU Cost Allocation and Partner Contributions – Total
The Sample MOU and accompanying Cost Allocation Analyses for hypothetical local areas may be used as a reference guide or toolkit when developing your own MOU, including your one-stop operating budget, Infrastructure Funding Agreement (IFA), and cost allocation methodologies, pursuant to the requirements of section 121 of WIOA, its implementing regulations at 20 CFR part 678 and 34 CFR parts 361 and 463, and the relevant guidance.
This Sample MOU includes actual portions of local MOUs and Infrastructure Funding Agreements (IFAs) that have been developed thus far. It is important to note that the local information contained in this sample MOU and cost allocation analyses is hypothetical and should be adapted to meet the particular circumstances in your local area. Use of the local hypothetical language in this document does not ensure compliance with WIOA and cannot substitute for developing these documents based on careful review of WIOA, its implementing regulations and guidance, and local conditions.
This sample MOU and cost allocation analyses should not replace the local negotiations that should occur or supplant any State laws that apply in any particular State. States and local areas are not required to develop an MOU that uses the same format of this sample because there are many other ways to develop a MOU.
