MOA Registry: Update


As of June 24, 2019, the MOA Registry website and process have changed.


Cornell University has implemented a new contract management platform to administer several types of international agreements, including:

  • International institutional collaborations (memorialized by Memoranda of Agreement, Project Agreements, Letters of Intent, Letter Agreements, Memoranda of Understanding, or any similar agreement regardless of title)
  • International revenue-generating activities (memorialized by Master Services Agreements, Statements of Work, Educational Services Agreements, or any similar agreement regardless of title)
  • International independent contractors (individual or non-corporate entity that resides outside of the United States, and provides personal services to Cornell University, while retaining control over the means and methods of accomplishing the result)

These types of agreements must be initiated through one of your operating unit’s designated contract administrators, and then executed by the designated signatory, which varies by type of contract and unit.


To initiate and execute any contracts listed above, please contact your unit’s contract administrator, as outlined here:
