I'n my experience, you're much better off using the HUP programme rather than the Work at Home for two reasons. First, the teachers sign the agreement for HUP and so they are liable for any breaches, second, they get downloadanble or physical media directly from Microsoft so you don't have to mess around with it at all.
Would depend on each organistation's requirements on the products they wish to use, i.e just office or office and windows too.
Also, Work from home cover faculty staff and not students.
Ok I've just had a quote of £4300 for 100 FTE so £43 per person.
Thats a bit pricey, get more quotes, you can get it below £40.

Sorry should have put that is for enterprise.
Our pricing is coming in at £41/person on Enterprise Desktop for 90 FTE. But as we're above the 300point threshold I do believe that pushes us into the EES (1000+ FTE) pricing structure, without strictly needing 1000+ FTE. Boy MS licensing is confusing!
I got below £40 for enterprise on 147 FTE, would recommend sticking your request on buyingsolutions.gov.uk as an ITQ and then haggle ;-)
Thanks I only need guideline pricing atm anyway for budget so that's cool.
Insight were pretty helpful giving some advice on the whole EES agreement and gave a good price for the separate products.
Must agree Insight, Ruth there licensing guru, has been exceptionally helpful to me and some other fellow IT Managers in my county regarding EES and confusion of it :) and pricing has been excellent as well :)
My quote that I got today based on 150 staff for Enterprise Desktop with Enterprise Cal is just over £39 each. PM if you want details.
Can anyone confirm the product code for std/ent?
For transparency reasons I have to admit: I am the Microsoft internal business manager for Schools in the South of the UK & Wales.........
Just wanted to clarify the minimum qualification terms for OVS-ES & EES licensing agreements are as follows
Schools can start an OVS-ES agreement (licensing based on their FTE Count) with a minimum of 5 FTE's
(FTE = any member of staff who works for 200+ hours per year and who uses the IT systems)
A school must license at least one desktop platform product for the organization-wide count defined in your enrollment or agreement. Desktop platform products include only the following:
• Windows 7 Upgrade Operating System
• Office Professional Plus 2010
• Core CAL Suite
• Enterprise CAL (ECAL) Suite
• Education Desktop with Core CAL Suite
• Education Desktop with Enterprise CAL Suite
The '300 unit' minimum no longer exists, as this applied to HE/FE customers before the new program launched at the start of March for Schools
If a School has 1000+ FTE's then they can start an EES agreement - which is transacted only via the EDLAR channel
2UJ-00007 - Desktop Education with ECAL
2UJ-00011 - Desktop Education with Core CAL
