The objectives of MoU system are to improve the performance of public sector enterprises by increasing
autonomy and accountability of the management; to remove the fuzziness in the goals and objectives of
public enterprises; and, to enable the evaluation of management performance through objective criteria
and provide a mechanism to reward good performance incentives to stimulate improved performance.
The MoU system has become robust in last couple of years due to new initiatives introduced by DPE such
as corporate social responsibility, research and development and sustainable development as mandatory
