10.27 Format

A memorandum is a short letter, note or report. The format most often used for memorandums within the federal public service is illustrated in the example (see 10.28 Model memorandum).

In the upper left part of the form appear the indications To, From and Subject. On the right are given the security classification (where applicable), the sender’s and receiver’s file references, if any, and the date.

If required, an indication of any attachments and a distribution list (Distribution or c.c.:) appear at the end of the document. This list can make communication more efficient because it tells the recipient who else is receiving the document.
