The NHSTE/Microsoft Consortium offers our members two (2) options for discounted purchases of Microsoft products:
EES Agreement Program Details:
This program is open to any independent or public school / district in New Hampshire who holds a NHSTE membership. Memberships are free and available on this website.
There are two EES options, and the links below outline the difference between the products included in each of the options. BOTH options include Windows desktop operating systems, Microsoft Office, and Windows Servers, as well as Exchange and Sharepoint. The Enterprise CAL covers additional server products such as Forefront, Lync, or Systems Center.
DEC 1 EES_Program Overview
The “Desktop Options” document contains the MSRP - by pooling the buying power of multiple districts, we have achieved "Level B" pricing and our actual pricing is quite a bit lower than this. Please contact your GovConnection Account Manager for specific pricing. Server and server software CALs are included, but the server OS and server product (Sharepoint, Exchange, etc.) base software must also be purchased each year.
Licensing is per full-time-employee (FTE). Remember that you count full-time knowledge-worker employees (i.e., not custodians or kitchen staff who never touch a computer or email). It is your choice whether to license paraprofessionals or teacher's aides, depending on the degree to which they use computers, email, and technology.
