MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT
Although not a legal contract, the MOA is a legal document that must remain consistent in language from one partnership to another. The current MOA has evolved through numerous corporate legal reviews. The prospective partner is able to review the terms of the agreement prior to the partnership. If changes are requested, a legal review from the Army Staff Judge Advocate (lawyer) is required. Once the prospective partner reviews and accepts the terms of the MOA the following information is required to complete the Official MOA:
- Legal name of corporation/company/public sector agency
- Full name and title of official authorized to sign the MOA
- Full name and title of the internal point of contact
- Complete address, phone number and fax number
This information allows the PaYS Marketing Analysts to coordinate preparation and mailing of the Official MOA for signature. A release of rights is included in the mailing with the Official MOA which the partner signs and returns with the MOA. The release of rights authorizes the PaYS Program to post the partner logo on the Army PaYS website once the partnership process is completed.
