The Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) is the foundation for the next generation of Microsoft Volume Licensing initiative, an end to end transformation of Volume Licensing that delivers an improved agreement structure, a more flexible and easy purchasing platform, and new systems and tools for all organizations that want to purchase Microsoft product licenses and services. The MPSA is recommended for customers purchasing 250 or more licenses of online services and/or software and who do not qualify for an Enterprise Agreement.The Select Plus licensing program will be phased out in two stages:

1. End of sale – In the first phase, which goes into effect July 1, 2015, Microsoft will no longer permit the sale of new commercial Select Plus agreements.

Commercial organizations can choose to migrate to the MPSA offering at the same price level as their current Select Plus agreement. Additionally, existing Select Plus customers with an agreement dated before July 1, 2015 can continue to procure licenses off their agreement. This announcement does not impact government or academic customers.

2. End of purchase – Beginning July 1, 2016, commercial organizations can no longer make purchases under their existing Select Plus agreements after their agreement anniversary dates. The agreement anniversary date is the day and month in which the Select Plus master agreement was signed.

As the countdown to retirement of the Select Plus program begins, organisations should start to evaluate how to most efficiently procure and manage their software assets in the future.

There’s no better time than now to contact your Account Manager or email licensing@scc.com to discuss these changes.
