The Software Assurance Scheme
The Microsoft Software Assurance scheme allows customers to install any new releases of the product covered in the Select agreement during the term of its coverage. Software Assurance can only be purchased at the same time as a Select licence, there is no option to purchase Software Assurance for an existing licence. Prices for Software Assurance are available on request to the IT Service Desk.
Obtaining the Software
Departments should use the Request for Microsoft Select Licence form to purchase software licences.
Departments which are VAT exempt, should also provide a VAT Exemption form.
The software requested will be copied onto CDs and can be collected at the same time as the licences. There is a charge of £3.00 for each CD. IT Services cannot provide two copies of a product under one licence number as this is contrary to the current software legislation.
