Open Value across the company and open value subscription are commitment-based agreements for business and government organizations that wish to license at the enterprise level over a period of one or two years. Software Assurance is included in the delivery. Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) is a transaction licensing agreement for commercial, government and academic organizations with 250 or more users/devices. MPSA is most appropriate for organizations that wish to license Microsoft for software, cloud services or needs, without an organization-wide obligation under a single, no-end agreement. Software Assurance is optional. Yes, yes. What is new to the MPSA is the possibility of having several types of organizations – commercial, academic or public – on an agreement with the use of purchase accounts. MPSA offers higher benefits from your licensed assets, more flexible purchases and simplified asset management through an improved contract structure, a new purchasing platform and modernized systems and tools. Combined with the value-added services of a cloud-based system integrator, hosting partner or reseller, the CSP program offers an easy way to license the cloud services your customers need. Local software and software insurance are not available from CSP partners. You must be a provider of Microsoft Licensing Solutions (LSP) to sell licenses and subscriptions through Microsoft Enterprise agreements and registrations. Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement (MOSA) is a transaction licensing agreement for commercial, government and academic organizations with one or more users/devices.
MOSA is best suited for organizations that want to subscribe, enable, deploy and manage cloud services through the Microsoft Online Subscription Program (MOSP) seamlessly and directly across the web. Local software and software insurance are not available via MOSA. A purchase account is a purchasing customer base in your organization that you create to order and manage products and services by registering them with an MPSA. This account can be opened to a department, a partner, a subset of staff or to your entire organization. To register a purchase account, you must complete a purchase account registration form and designate a legal person in the form. Thus, the purchaser and the corporation are associated with the terms of MPSA. Each purchase account is registered only once and each account is assigned to a type of commercial, academic or government sector. You can have purchase accounts from different types of sectors on an MPSA. A purchase account is referred to as a contract administrator. The contract administrator manages mpsa, monitors the participation of other purchase accounts in MPSA and can display assets on all accounts.
