Purchasing: What Qualifies as Proof of Licensing for Licenses Purchased Under MS Select?

Departments should establish and maintain proof of licensing for all software purchased, including products purchased under the MS Select Agreement. Such proof may be required to obtain licenses and/or media, but may also be requested by University auditors and, under certain circumstances, third-party auditors.

Neither Microsoft nor its resellers provide any hard copy license certification or documentation for products purchased under this agreement. The following constitute proof of licensing:

  1. A University-issued Purchase Order (not just a requisition) that includes explicit line items for Microsoft Select products.

  2. An Invoice or Order statement (not just a quote) from Dell or another Microsoft Select reseller that includes explicit line items confirming the purchase of Microsoft Select products.

More information can also be found on our Microsoft Select page.

If asked by SDS to provide proof of licensing when obtaining Volume License Keys, volume installation media, or for other purposes, such proof should be faxed or e-mailed to SDS.
