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. Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) consolidates the purchase of Microsoft Cloud Services, Software and Microsoft Software Assurance. MPSA is suitable for organizations with 250 or more users and offers a purchase account structure. Through the microsoft products and services (MPSA) agreement, Microsoft has overhauled the way volume licenses are purchased. In collaboration with licensing partners and customers, Microsoft has developed a licensing program combining the transactional purchase of software licenses and online services in an agreement that will be significantly simplified compared to previous agreements. You can provide cloud services directly from the Microsoft Business Center, which sends a processing order to your chosen partner. Your partner then charges you for your cloud services.
These documents describe all the minimum order requirements as well as specific definitions or terms for the program. An example of a company registration is the definition of a “qualified user” and a “qualified device.” These are important definitions, because because of the signing of an Enterprise record, you accept the purchase of an Enterprise product (Office Professional, Windows Operating System, Enterprise-CAL or Core-CAL and some O365-SKUs) for any qualified user or device within the organization. It is important to understand this responsibility and take steps to change this language if you have large groups of users or devices that, for whatever reason, do not participate in the agreement. The Microsoft Business Services Agreement (MBSA) is a permanent document with no fixed expiry date and contains most of the terms and conditions applicable to all Microsoft agreements and records. In section 2 of the MBSA, you will usually find the language in terms of usage, ownership, rights and all restrictions. Section 3 of the MBSA explains how both parties should handle confidential information. Guarantees, defending third-party claims, limitation of liability and compliance verification are also dealt with in the MBSA.
