For public sector organizations with fewer than 250 users or devices, Microsoft offers customized versions of the Open agreements: Open License, Open Value, and Open Value Subscription. The Open License for Academic and Open License for Government agreements are similar to commercial Open License, but with a single price level and different partner channels. In some countries or regions, government organizations can also participate in the Open Value for Government and Open Value Subscription for Government agreements. In some countries or regions, nonprofit organizations can participate in the Open License for Nonprofit agreement. Check with your Microsoft Reseller for availability.
Government and academic organizations with 250 or more users or devices can participate in the Select Plus agreement. Government organizations can also participate in the Enterprise Agreement.
For education institutions that prefer to license their software on an annual subscription basis, Microsoft offers two unique programs: Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (for higher education institutions and primary/secondary schools) and Microsoft School Enrollment (for primary/secondary schools only).
Microsoft also offers programs that can meet the specific needs of organizations that partner with Microsoft to provide additional software and services, such as the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Royalty Licensing and Distribution Agreement and the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA).
