Co-Sponsor, University, or Not-for-Profit Accounts
In some cases, a university or other not-for-profit organization may collect funds and make disbursements to vendors on behalf of the conference. In this case, a Fiscal Agent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), should be signed by the Sponsoring OU and the not-for-profit organization (Agent). In some cases, the agent may also be a financial sponsor on the event, but a Fiscal Agent MoU will still be needed in addition to the Sponsorship MoU.
For conferences held in the USA, Canada, or Australia
For all other conference locations worldwide
Note that even if the entity managing the funds is considered a not-for-profit, if they are being paid for providing goods or services of any kind to the conference, they should sign a contract rather than a Fiscal Agent MoU. See the section below on Management Companies for more details.
