Renewal of DON Microsoft Enterprise Licensing Agreement Signed

November 30, 2015

Updated 11/30/15

The Department of the Navy Enterprise Software Licensing (DON ESL) team awarded a follow-on Blanket Purchase Agreement to the first agreement for Microsoft licenses and software assurance (SA) on 15 May 2015. The effective date of the agreement is 01 June and will support the renewal of SA and procurement of new Microsoft brand software licenses with SA, subscriptions and SA-step up (SASU) for desktop and server based products.

The agreement, valid through 2018, continues to consolidate previously purchased Microsoft licenses used across the enterprise; and, therefore, optimizes cost savings by leveraging the full purchasing capacity of the department. Acquired licenses and SA must be compatible and interoperable with existing DON hardware and technology equipment. The estimated value of the BPA, including the base period and two option periods, is 543.72 million.

Ordering guidance: All Navy and Marine Corps procurement actions for information technology software must go through their respective processes identified at the Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) PMM-110 portal page . Since this is a dynamic environment, other policies may be added with little notice. Information about ordering products via other DON ELAs can also be found at this site.

Use of DON ELAs, where available, is mandatory by all DON organizations and programs per the joint memo "Mandatory Use of DON Enterprise Licensing Agreements," which was signed Feb. 22, 2012, by the Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer, the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research Development and Acquisition, and the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Financial Management and Comptroller.
