Microsoft Select agreement not signed by the Department of Education
I have been told by one of our resellers at school that the Department of Education has not yet signed the new select agreement for schools so as a result schools will not be able to avail of reduced pricing once the contracts signed by schools under the (now defunct) Becta select agreement expires. Since Becta used to have responsibility for this and now are all but in name scrapped it seems this responsibility has be shifted to the Department of Education. Ours expired last month and we have to now pay full commercial rates for any Microsoft perpetual licences as a result. This doesn't surprise me... another victim of this Government's cutbacks. Looks like there could be another incompetency shambles in the making... Anyone heard anything about this?
