- 10/31/12 The State has received the Select-Plus Agreement and Agreement number from Microsoft. SHI and Dell have the number if you want to REGISTER for the Select-Plus program.
You have to register with your reseller if you want to obtain the best discounts when you buy Microsoft products. Your reseller will start the registration process by filling out parts of the Microsoft Affiliate Registration form and will send the document to you for completion.
If you have software assurance (SA) on existing licenses or subscriptions (e.g., Bing Maps) and you want to renew your SA or your subscription, you MUST Register as soon as possible. Your renewal order can't be later than 11/30/12 or you will have to purchase a new license if you want SA and you could lose data in your subscription. Don’t wait until the last minute since the Registration process could take several days.
Note that you want to register if you want to:
• purchase new software (priced using the Gov’t discount),
• renew your Software Assurance (SA) on existing licenses,
• or renew subscriptions like Bing Maps.
• If you had a Select Agreement Enrollment, I’m sure you want a Select-Plus REGISTRATION.
What you need to do if you want to REGISTER in the Select-Plus Agreement:
1) Read the FAQ document attached below. (This document has some important information that I have highlighted.)
2) Read the Select-Plus Agreement and the Amendment attached below (reading this document is highly recommended.)
3) WORK WITH YOUR RESELLER if you have questions.
4) REGISTRATION PROCESS consists of:
• Your reseller has to START the paperwork process and send you the AFFILIATE REGISTRATION form.
• Either your reseller or you has to enter the “NAME OF ENTITY” on the form. This name MUST MATCH EXACTLY the name that MS has on file for you. You can find this name on the VLSC (MS Volume Licensing website) or ask your reseller. (Don’t ask me since I don’t have easy access to the name.)
• Fill out all areas to complete the form. Make SURE that the NOTICES and CONTACTS persons are people who want communications directly from MS. (Always be sure these names are accurate in the MS VLSC website.)
• Unless you want software assurance on every license you own, check NO in each box in section 7 of the REGISTRATION form. (SHI has entered a check in the NO box already.)
• Sign the form and return it to your RESELLER.
SA and subscription renewals. Get your paperwork and purchase order to your reseller as soon as possible since they have tasks they need to do before forwarding the documents to MS.
There is also another form to complete if you are renewing SA on your licenses. That form requires you to enter your old ENROLLMENT number. Find the number on the VLSC or ask your RESELLER. Your reseller has to include this form with your REGISTRATION form if you are renewing SA on existing licenses.
Note, if you are not familiar with the VLSC website, talk to your reseller. This is the web site where you can download licenses, keep track of any benefits, etc.
In future years (2013 and beyond) renewal orders for SA and subscriptions are required on or before the expiration date of your current order. In other words, we do NOT have a 30 day grace period like we had with the Select program.
Websense Enterprise, Corporate Edition, Desktop web Content Filter Software has been added to this Contract. The prices are firm until 8/31/2013. See the attachment below for product names and prices.
En Pointe's contract with the State of Wisconsin expires on 10/28/2011. Authorized Users must not place any orders with En Pointe after that date.
En Pointe's contract included the Microsoft Academic software and maintenance products. SHI International has been awarded this part of the Microcomputer Software Contract. An amended version of the SHI Contract has been attached to this site.
11/18/2010 Microsoft has issued a notice that Select Agreements and enrollments will be discontinued on June 30, 2011. They fail to explain however that the Select Agreements/Enrollments for Government will not be discontinued. Our Select Agreement/Enrollments will continue. So don't panic.
While we intend to enroll in the Select-Plus program, Microsoft has told us that they are not able to keep track of the license expiration dates, therefore the program is not ready for Government users.
10/26/2011 All five Contractors (Resellers) are now listed on this Contract.
WHAT CAN I BUY?
This is a mandatory Contract that provides Authorized Users the ability to purchase Microcomputer Software and Maintenance/Support for software on the Contract. The scope of this Contract includes all software and software maintenance if it is:
• “Shrink-Wrapped” software
• “Off-the-Shelf software
• Licensed Software
• Software Media
• Software Upgrades
• Maintenance/Support Agreements offered by the Publisher/licensor.
• Subscription Software (limited) (No services can be included) (see also below)
The scope of this Contract does not include:
• Specialized and highly-customizable software
• Software that requires implementation costs
• Software services other than maintenance/support
• Specific Symantec anti-virus software (Endpoint Protection) on Contract # 15-20890-601. If more information is needed, contract link on VendorNet is Symantec anti-virus software (Endpoint Protection) on Contract # 15-20890-601
• Subscription Software that includes services that could affect the State’s labor force, including but not limited to:
Microsoft‘s Business Productivity Online Standard Suite (BPOS). Also known as Microsoft Office 365.
In addition, the State has separate non-mandatory contracts with Oracle, ESRI and SAS.
The scope of the Contract does not include any professional services, such as consulting, software enhancements or any other professional services offered by a contractor, Reseller or Publisher/licensor. All professional services requests must be obtained through the mandatory IT Services Contract using the VMS and the RFS process.
WHICH CONTRACTOR (Reseller) SELLS WHAT?
Authorized Users may purchase any Publisher’s software provided it is within the scope of the Contract from any of the Resellers except for Microsoft.
The successful Resellers for Microsoft’s products are Dell and SHI.
The successful Reseller for Microsoft Education is SHI International.
The Resellers names, addresses, contacts, telephone numbers, etc are listed on the Vendor Contact List (attached).
The Resellers are able to sell thousands of products from thousands of Publishers. Resellers may or may not be able to sell every Publisher or even every product offered by the Publisher. However, at least one of the Resellers on the Contract should be able to provide at one time or another almost all your software needs.
There aren't any product, publisher or price lists for any of the resellers because of the huge number of products they carry. If you want something from a large publisher like Symantec, the reseller may have a price list. In many cases, the best way to contact the resellers is with the quote form attached below. Send all resellers the quote form at the same time.
The purchase price is based either on a Cost-Plus Percentage or a List-Less Discount Percentage (Novell only).
The Pricing Cheat Sheet attachment (see below) lists the Reseller’s cost plus percentages for several Major Publishers along with the volume license agreement. All “Other” Publishers are covered by the “Other” category.
The Microsoft Enterprise Agreement Firm Prices are provided on a separate spreadsheet attached below.
Agencies should email (use the Quote Form attached below) each appropriate Reseller every time they are requesting price quotes. The cost price for each Reseller for the same Publisher could be very different; therefore the lowest cost-plus percentage listed may not get you the cheapest purchase price.
The "Cost Plus" price on this Contract shall be considered the maximum price you pay for any product. Authorized Users are free to negotiate further discounts or better pricing on a case-by-case basis. When purchasing large quantities, be sure you provide the size of your order when obtaining quotes. The Resellers should attempt to negotiate lower cost prices from the Publisher and pass those savings on to you.
Permission may be granted, at the discretion of the State Bureau of Procurement, allowing agencies to purchase from a source not included on this Contract if it is determined to be in the best interest of the State. Agencies must justify, in writing, each case to the State Bureau of Procurement Contract Manager prior to the purchase. Justification includes the name of the suggested vendor, the description of the item, the cost and the reason for not using this mandatory Contract. The agency must have also attempted to obtain the product from the Resellers on the Contract.
PUBLISHER’S END USER TERMS AND CONDITIONS, LICENSE AGREEMENTS, ETC.:
This Contract does not cover many of the individual Publisher’s software licensing terms and conditions required by many software Publishers for their products. Therefore, every purchaser of software who signs, agrees to or clicks agreement to Publisher’s terms and conditions is responsible for ensuring that the terms and conditions are allowable, acceptable and legal for the State of Wisconsin. If you are not positive, then you must submit the terms and conditions to your purchasing and/or your legal people. There are some terms and conditions that the state cannot agree to or sign.
Listed below are some terms to watch out for.
--State must indemnify the vendor—(State can never indemnify any vendor)
--Induced Inhibiting Code
--Disabling Devices—(i.e., Ability for Publisher to shut down the software)
--Audit Terms—(i.e., Ability for Publisher to audit unannounced)
--Infringement Indemnification—(Publisher will not infringe any intellectual property rights of any third party and will indemnify the State)
--Applicable Law—(Only the Laws of the State of Wisconsin can be agreed to)
--Assignment—(i.e., Ability for Publisher to sell or assign agreement without your knowledge. You want the terms you agreed to follow any sale or assignment)
Authorized Users may wish to review existing Master License Agreements for terms and conditions that have been agreed to by the State. (see link below)
MASTER LICENSE AGREEMENTS:
There are some Master License Agreements for some major Publishers signed by the State covering terms and conditions and use of the software. Here is a link to the Master License Agreements located on VendorNet. If there is a Master License Agreement, the Authorized User does not have to agree to any other licensing terms or conditions.
There is a Master License Agreement for Microsoft; however, it does not include the Product Use Rights. Microsoft has a huge website devoted to product usage for each product it publishes. Authorized Users must comply with Microsoft’s Product Use Rights and must visit the website to ensure the product is being used according to the use rights.
COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS: (STATE AGENCIES ONLY):
The Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) process is required for all State Agencies when purchasing services. Maintenance may or may not include services. This Contract includes the purchase of Technical Support/Maintenance from multiple Publishers. The support may consist of solving technical problems at the user’s location via a help desk. Support may also include updates, fixes, etc., therefore each agency needs to determine whether the value of the services support (verses updates) exceeds $25,000. A suggestion for determining the value of the service to the agency might be estimating the number of hours the agency spent (over a 12 month period) having the Publisher help them solve problems, etc. Multiplying the total hours times $100/hour (or some other reasonable dollar amount) should equal the reasonable value of the service. The Agency is required to do a CBA when the value exceeds $25,000.
The USER GUIDE attached to the Contract may also be helpful and provide useful information about this Contract.
MICROSOFT MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS:
Microsoft sends out monthly newsletters via email to inform customers of updates to the distribution of media subscription kits in the near future. In the newsletter they provide links to websites that provide more information. They also post one newsletter (usually not up to date) on their Current News web site. If you want to see the newsletter and you are not on the mailing list, you can go to their website every month and read the news on line. The website that is very hard to find is the ARCHIVED SHIPMENT CONTENT LIST. That website is provided here. To view the current news, go to the archived list and click on CURRENT NEWS on the left side of the page. Products Use Rights
