Strategic Partner

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

About our Strategic Partnerships

Partnerships are an important focus for CAUDIT, and the sector, as a commitment to mutual benefits and the transformation of higher education and research. Each partnership is unique in its value to the entities involved.

In some circumstances, CAUDIT will engage in Strategic Partners governed by an MoU usually with other sector organisations that identify a specific set of deliverables including, but not limited to, taking the shape of partnering for conferences or projects, sharing of IP, and providing specific advantages or services for those employed within IT or promoting the exchange of information regarding digital services.

The development of an MoU may take several months through personalised discussions with the CAUDIT CEO ensuring alignment of the deliverables against strategic criteria and focus and will be executed by the CAUDIT Executive on behalf of the CAUDIT Membership.

Acceptance into the Strategic Partnership is very limited and application submission does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Because application to the Strategic Partner offering is subject to strong scrutiny, your application may not progress beyond application not because the mutual objectives are not worthwhile, but because the timing isn’t right. This in no way reflects on the value of your company and products.
