A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed by the relevant decision-making authorities, documents the principal agreements being made by each of the participating entities. Typically, this is a high-level summary description of how each entity will participate in or contribute to LEAD, with an appendix addressing any specific agreements about logistics and operations of the PCG. The MOU should provide that the PCG will operate by consensus of its members, and that each member has a single vote, though it may bring multiple people to meetings. Templates are available from the LEAD Support Bureau.
