I don't really know where to put this so I hope this is OK.
I work in a very large first school (reception to Yr 4) which is very short of money and running a deficit budget.
I have been here 5 years, and in that time I have ensured that any software I put on the network is properly licensed.
However, much of the software that was already on the system turns out not to be properly licensed, or at least I have no record of it and indeed no software in some cases. There was no central storage or record keeping when I came here.
Now - it has to be said that I suspected that this was the case but I never pursued it as I knew we had no money and nothing could be done.
Now we are having a new system installed and it turns out that about £4400 pounds worth of software and licenses are missing.
Is this my fault? I have a responsibility to ensure that anything I put on the network is licensed, but what about stuff that is already there? No one has ever asked me to check anything.
I am really worried about this and wonder if I will lose my job over it.
