MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
Microsoft Open Value Overview
Microsoft® Open Value is for small to midsize organizations with five or more desktop PCs that want a flexible
and affordable way to use and manage Microsoft licensed products under a single agreement. The Microsoft
Open Value Program offers simplified license management and better control of your licensed product costs
and investment. Open Value provides flexibility to acquire licenses or add product licenses as needed.
Additional cost savings are available when standardizing desktop PC licensed product Organization-Wide.
Open Value also offers the advantages of Microsoft® Software Assurance for Volume Licensing, a
comprehensive offering from Microsoft that helps you get the most out of your software investment with 24x7
support, deployment planning services, end-user and technical training, and the latest software releases and
unique technologies, all in one cost-effective program.
Open Value offers many benefits, including:
Simplified License Management
•
•
•
You get a single agreement for all Microsoft licensed products within a territory, including qualified
affiliates in other countries.
You can upgrade at any time — no need to track versions or open new agreements.
You can transition new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) licenses onto your agreement by
purchasing Software Assurance.
Ability to Take Control of Your Investment
•
•
•
With the Software Assurance New Product Version benefit, you receive rights to new versions of licensed
products to deploy at your convenience.
Plus, Software Assurance offers benefits such as Planning Services, IT Training and 24x7 Problem Resolution
Support so that you can take advantage of consulting services, training and support to help you deploy
your new software.
You can upgrade licensed products Organization-Wide while staying within budget.
More Licensing Flexibility
•
•
Open Value gives you a single platform option, which allows you to choose components from the
Windows® Desktop Operating System Upgrade, Microsoft® Office, and Client Access Licenses (CAL) under
a single platform for every desktop PC in your organization. The custom platform option allows customers
with the Organization-Wide option to continue Software Assurance coverage on multiple product versions
rather than only on the latest version.
If your organization requires Microsoft’s enterprise solutions, Microsoft Office Professional Plus,
Windows Small Business Server Client Access License (CAL) Suite are available.
4
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
Better Management of Your Software Costs
•
•
Spread payments with the Software Assurance Spread Payments benefit which reduces up-front costs and
helps you forecast annual budget requirements with predictable annual payments.
You have rights to new software version releases with Software Assurance New Product Versions benefit to
help you lower the costs of acquiring software licenses while simplifying procurement and forecasting
Organization-Wide licensing provides additional savings.
Open Value Options
You can choose from several Open Value options that are available to meet the needs of a wide range of
customers. The Open Value Subscription option is for organizations that prefer to subscribe to software
licenses. For customers who prefer to purchase software licenses, Open Value is available in both
Organization-Wide and Non–Organization-Wide options. The Organization-Wide option offers simplified
license management and additional discounts.
The following questions can help you determine the best Open Value option for your organization:
•
•
•
Do you need desktop PC products (Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, the Windows® 7 Professional
Upgrade, and Microsoft Core Client Access License Suite) or other Microsoft software products?
If you need enterprise products, do you want to standardize software for all your qualified desktop PCs? If
yes, choose either Open Value Organization-Wide or Open Value Subscription options. These options can
give you the best pricing and allow you to manage all your licenses in one agreement.
Do you want to buy perpetual licenses for all your qualified desktop PCs or subscribe to licenses for the
agreement term? Chose Open Value if you want to buy perpetual licenses, and select Open Value
Subscription if you like the flexibility that comes with subscription. The product buy-out option is available
in Open Value Subscription.
Open Value Organization-Wide Option
Open Value Organization-Wide option offers predictable annual payments, low long-term costs, and a simple
way to manage licenses. You get additional savings opportunities and a single price per desktop PC (minimum
five licenses) to organizations that want to standardize all their desktop PCs on one or more Microsoft
enterprise products. This option also provides an agreement that helps you better predict your costs during the
three year term. You agree to acquire licenses and Software Assurance for the licensed product you select for all
your organization and its affiliates’ qualified desktop PCs. An annual desktop PC price based on your count of
qualified desktop PCs allows you to run any licensed product version on any PC.
Organization-Wide is also attractive if you want to standardize software throughout your organization.
Standardization helps to increase security, reduce support costs, and enable Organization-Wide solutions that
require a common technology platform. Benefits for this include:
•
Count your qualified desktop PCs at the beginning of the agreement to determine your annual cost.
•
Receive additional savings on Organization-Wide licenses.
•
An additional price point, level C, is available in most countries for organizations with the Open Value
Organization-Wide option that order licenses for at least 250 qualified desktop PCs through their initial
purchase order.
5
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
•
Pay a per-desktop PC license price for new licenses during the month of installation.
•
Spread out costs through the remaining years.
•
Add software products at any time and pay for them during the month of installation.
•
Transition OEM licenses onto your Open Value agreement by purchasing Software Assurance.
You need to acquire at least one of the following platform product licenses for each qualified desktop PC in
your organization:
•
Microsoft Office: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
•
Operating Systems: Windows 7 Professional Plus Upgrade
•
Client Access License (CAL) Suites: The Enterprise CAL Suite, Core CAL Suite, or the Small Business Server CAL
Suite
After purchasing at least one of these licenses for each qualified desktop PC Organization-Wide, you may add
licenses as you need them. For example, you can license all your desktop PCs to run the current version of
Office Professional Plus. You may then purchase licenses for Microsoft Office Visio® Professional 2010 (or any
other Microsoft software available through Volume Licensing) for individual desktop PCs as needed.
You may elect to add another platform product Organization-Wide after the start of the agreement. However,
Microsoft does not extend any discounts for Organization-Wide platform product purchases after the
agreement is initiated.
If you do not need enterprise products or licenses for all your qualified desktop PCs, you should acquire your
licenses through Open Value Non-Organization-Wide option.
Open Value Subscription Option
Customers may subscribe to, rather than acquire, Microsoft product licenses. The Subscription option gives
your organization the rights to run the software Organization-Wide only during the term of the agreement with
Microsoft. Microsoft Open Value Subscription provides the lowest up-front costs of the Open program options
with the flexibility to reduce your total licensing costs in years when your desktop PC count declines. With the
subscription option, you can choose to pay a single price per desktop PC (minimum of five desktop PCs) to
deploy Microsoft technology as the standard across your organization. Typical subscription customers are
looking to build or maintain an IT infrastructure on a standard platform of products to respond rapidly to a
changing business environment.
With Open Value Subscription, you pay a single price per desktop PC to deploy Microsoft technology across
your organization during the term agreement’s term.
•
•
You can receive additional savings off the first-year reference price on platform software, including the
Windows operating system upgrade, the Microsoft Office system, and CALs for current versions of platform
product software that you are transferring from a perpetual license to subscription with the
Up-to-Date discount.
Count your desktop PCs once per year and place your annual purchase order for the then-current number
of desktop PCs.
6
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
•
Add the Organization-Wide licensed products you have selected on new desktop PCs during the year with
no additional cost that year.
•
Your total licensing costs can decline in years when your desktop PC count declines.
•
Track all licenses on a single agreement.
•
•
A buy-out option is available for those who want to retain their software licenses when the
agreement expires.
If you choose the buy-out option, you can continue benefiting from Software Assurance by starting a new
Open Value Agreement for Software Assurance only.
As with the Organization-Wide option, you need to acquire at least one of the following platform product
licenses for each qualified desktop PC in your organization:
•
Microsoft Office
•
Windows Operating System Upgrade
•
Client Access License
Government Option: To better align with government organization procurement requirements, a one-year
Open Value Subscription option is available with Open Value Subscription for Government1. This gives
government organizations the flexibility to choose from a one-year or three-year term.
Platform Option for Open Value Organization-Wide and Subscription
With both Open Value Subscription and Open Value Organization-Wide options, you can choose to standardize
desktop PC licensed product across your organization on all three components on the platform and receive
additional savings. The platform option provides the simplest desktop PC license management solution
because you do not need to track which version is installed on which desktop PC. Instead of individual licenses
for Windows operating system upgrade, the 2010 Microsoft Office system, and server CALs, the platform option
provides a single license per desktop PC. With the customized platform option, you can mix CAL and Microsoft
Office licenses within the platform agreement, and purchase additional CALs to cover non-qualifying clients,
such as mobile devices, that need access to IT systems.
If your organization requires Microsoft’s enterprise solutions, Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010,
Enterprise CAL, and the Microsoft® Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) are available.
Open Value Non–Organization-Wide
(Without the Organization-Wide or Subscription Options)
If you need licenses for servers, or for just some of your desktop PCs, you can open a Non–Organization-Wide
Agreement. You can take advantage of spreading annual payments for the licenses and upgrade rights and
other benefits that come with Software Assurance. Customers who do not want to standardize their desktop
PCs can obtain all licenses through Open Value Non Organization-Wide and manage all those Microsoft
licenses through a single agreement.

Opening an Open Value Agreement
Open Value is offered through authorized resellers worldwide who can help you evaluate your needs and select
the right Open Value option for your organization.
Open Value Agreement Details
Agreement Process—Electronic or Manual
Your reseller counsels you and processes your Open Value Agreement:
•
Your reseller coordinates with you and collects information on the agreement requirements, such as
agreement options, qualified desktop PC count, affiliate information, and languages required.
9
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
•
•
•
Your reseller either provides the information directly to Microsoft or works with a Microsoft distributor to
complete the process.
You receive an e-mail with instructions to log on to the eAgreements website to electronically sign the
agreement or you can sign and mail a paper copy. Your agreement is processed when the signed
agreement is received by Microsoft either electronically or in paper form.
Once the agreement is processed and activated, you receive an e-mail with instructions to access the
Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) website at
https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter . The VLSC is the single online resource for Microsoft
Volume Licensing customers to view Licensing information, download licensed Microsoft software, view
product keys and manage Volume Licensing benefits
and subscriptions.
Order Process
•
Your reseller coordinates with you and collects information on order requirements.
•
•
Your reseller places your order with a Microsoft distributor. Once this distributor electronically processes
your order, you will receive a confirmation letter and a welcome kit.
Note: your order is only processed once your agreement has been activated in Microsoft’s system.
Spread Payments or Pay Up-front
Open Value lets you choose to spread payments annually or pay up front. If you decide to pay up front—for
example, to get the costs into the current budget year—you still have the ability to spread out payments on
future orders.
If you elect to spread out your payments, you must submit an order each year through your reseller, even if
there is no change in the number of products you license.
•
•
•
For Open Value Non Organization-Wide and Open Value Organization-Wide options, the order must be for
no less than the number of products ordered on your previous anniversary order plus any new and
additional licensed products run during the year.
Microsoft will give you prior written notice 45 days before and 30 days after each anniversary to submit an
anniversary order to your reseller. If an order is not received within 60 days after the anniversary of the
effective date, Microsoft may invoice you directly for all sums due during the term of the agreement or may
instruct a third party to invoice and collect your payment.
The two payment options available under this agreement include equal annual installments or lump sum
payment. However, you can arrange other payment plans with your reseller.
Minimum Initial Purchase
The minimum purchase level for Open Value is five licenses with Software Assurance. For Organization-Wide
and Subscription, all qualified desktop PCs must be licensed.
Renewing customers may open an Open Value Agreement with Software Assurance for five licenses.
Agreement Term Length
Open Value Agreements have a three-year agreement term.
10
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
With the Organization-Wide and Non Organization-Wide options, at the end of the three-year agreement, you
can either renew for another three years, paying only for Software Assurance, and continue to enjoy rights to
the latest software versions as well as other benefits, or stop and own the licenses for the most current software
version that is available when your agreement expires.
With the subscription option, at the end of your three-year agreement, you can renew for another three years.
Or you can make a final buyout payment if you would like to own licenses for the latest version that is available
when your agreement expires.
Products
Open Value customers can select from all platform products, plus additional software products.
The set of software products that you can license through Open Value depends on the options that you choose:
•
•
•
If you choose Open Value (without the Organization-Wide option), you can choose from all platform
products and additional products.
If you choose Open Value with the Organization-Wide option, you can choose from all platform products
and additional products including Microsoft Enterprise Solutions. If you do not want to license a platform
product organization-wide (i.e., for all your PCs), then you can order any number of the platform products
you like as additional products.
If you choose Open Value Subscription, you can choose one or more platform products that you want to
license organization-wide. You can then add any product for any number of systems. Microsoft Exchange
Server and Windows Client Access Licenses (CALs) are not available as additional products through
Open Value Subscription. Any platform product must be purchased organization-wide.

MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
Price Protection
To help you with your budget process, Microsoft’s prices for platform product licenses to our distribution
partners ordered under the subscription option does not change during the first term of your Open Value
Agreement. The price protection for a product starts when you first order a platform product. Resellers set the
final prices, so be sure to check with your reseller on pricing.
In Open Value Organization-Wide option, platform products have price protection, but additional products do
not. If you choose spread payments for a purchase order that you place through your Open Value Agreement
(with or without the Organization-Wide option), then the pricing for subsequent payments does not change,
even if the price for that particular product has increased in the meantime. Price protection does not apply to
promotional prices. The price that is protected is the list price to the distribution partner at the time of purchase
and not the promotional price1.
Software Languages
Open Value includes the All Language stock keeping unit (SKU). There is one exception in Europe, Middle East,
and Africa (EMEA) regions, which is the ability to choose the Romanian and Bulgarian Languages (RAB) SKU in
place of the All Languages SKU.
Customers who sign up for the “All Languages” category are eligible to use the Multi-Language Packs for
Organization-Wide products and additional products licensed under their agreement.
Language versions through Open Value are dependent on the languages available in the particular licensed
product. You have the flexibility to select the local language for your affiliates, which can be included under a
single agreement within your territory.
Cross-language use rights allow you to use any language versions of licensed software as long as the language
versions in use are priced the same as or less than the original version.
Software Assurance on OEM Licenses
Licenses for products installed by OEMs can be added to an Open Value Agreement. Many Open Value
customers want to add their OEM license purchases to an Open Value Agreement so that they can easily track
all licenses online under a single agreement.
You can include the OEM licenses in Open Value by purchasing Software Assurance for the OEM licenses within
90 days of acquisition. You can then track the Software Assurance for those OEM licenses online through the
VLSC site.
You cannot add Software Assurance for the OEM licenses with the Subscription option because you are not
purchasing licenses or Software Assurance, but you are simply subscribing to use the latest software with
built-in Software Assurance benefits.
1
Monthly Subscription SKUs offered does not have price protection when annual payment option is selected.
13
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
Covering Affiliates in Your Territory
You may be able to include affiliates in other countries on your Open Value Agreement, which can help
centralize your purchasing and reduce random purchase orders from remote offices. An affiliate is a legal entity
that you own, which owns you, or which is under common ownership with you. Ownership is defined as more
than 50 percent ownership. Qualifying affiliate means an owned affiliate located within the same region
or territory.
With Organization-Wide and Subscription options, the enterprise must consist of entire legal entities, not
partial entities such as departments, divisions, or business units. Each affiliate must be entirely “included in” or
entirely “excluded from” the agreement. Entities that decide to participate are referred to as “enrolled affiliates.”
In the agreement, you can choose between:
•
Excluding all your affiliates
•
Including a set of affiliates that you specify in the agreement
•
Including a set of affiliates that you specify in the agreement, and automatically include all your
future affiliates
See the Microsoft Open Affiliate Participation page at http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/programs
/open/openregional.mspx to determine which countries can include affiliates within your territory on a
centralized Open Value Agreement.
See the Appendix at the end of this document for a description of regional differences in the
Open Value program.
Media
Your Open Value Agreement grants you permission to legally copy and use multiple copies of the licensed
product, per terms of your agreement. You will receive media for each licensed product title at no charge, and
you can also purchase additional copies through your reseller or download from the Microsoft Volume
Licensing Service Center (VLSC) website. You can elect to receive physical media for each new release of
products licensed through the Open Value Agreement.
Media can be web-based downloads of Microsoft Volume Licensing products from VLSC, materials such as a
floppy disk, CD-ROM, or DVD for a licensed software product, and may also include printed materials such as a
user’s guide or product manual.
Choosing Software Assurance in Organization-Wide
Under the Open Value program, all products come with Software Assurance. Open Value Organization-Wide
Programs are very attractive if you want to renew Software Assurance for licenses with current or expiring
Software Assurance previously acquired through Open License. Such a renewal can be done without having to
buy licenses again if you do so before the expiration of your Open License Agreement through which you
purchased Software Assurance.
14
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
If you choose Open Value without the Organization-Wide option, then you can order Software Assurance for
licenses with current or expiring Software Assurance at any time during the Open Value Non Organization-Wide
Agreement. The same process is true for additional products that you would like to order through an
Open Value Agreement with the Organization-Wide option. However, for Organization-Wide product licenses
such as Office Professional Plus 2010, you may only renew Software Assurance at the start of the agreement.
The standardization on which the Organization-Wide option is based assumes that you order Software
Assurance for the number of qualified desktop PCs at the initiation of your Open Value Organization-Wide
agreement, even if the licenses are already covered with Software Assurance through another agreement that
has not yet expired.
Adding Licenses to an Agreement
Open Value (With Organization-Wide Option)
Organization-Wide Products
For all Organization-Wide platform products that you have chosen, you must place a purchase order for all your
qualified desktop PCs at the start of your agreement. Depending on the type of license (OEM, FPP, or Volume
Licensing) and the purchase date, you may order only Software Assurance or a license with Software Assurance.
If the total number of desktop PCs among the enrolled affiliates increases, then you must order additional
licenses for the Organization-Wide platform products that you have chosen to maintain standardization. This
order must be placed before the end of the month in which the new desktop PCs are placed in service.
The set of Organization-Wide products that you choose cannot be changed during the agreement.
Additional Products
You can order licenses with Software Assurance for additional products at any time during your Open Value
Organization-Wide agreement. If you need licenses for an additional product, you must place a purchase order
before the end of the month in which you install the copy or copies of the additional product.
You may add Software Assurance for licenses with Software Assurance acquired through other expiring
agreements at any time during the agreement.
Open Value (Non Organization-Wide Option)
You may add licenses with Software Assurance for previously ordered products and you may also obtain
licenses with Software Assurance for products not previously ordered at any time during the course of your
agreement. You are allowed to install any number of copies of any product available through your Open Value
Agreement as long as you place a purchase order with your reseller before the end of the month in which you
carried out the additional installations.
You may add Software Assurance for licenses with Software Assurance acquired through other expiring

MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
Open Value Subscription
Organization-Wide Products
For all Organization-Wide products that you have chosen, you must place a purchase order for all your qualified
desktop PCs at the start of your agreement. You must place an annual purchase order with your reseller on the
first and second anniversary of the agreement for the then-current number of qualified desktop PCs to maintain
standardization. The set of Organization-Wide products that you choose cannot be changed during
the agreement.
Additional Products
You can order licenses for additional software products at any time during your Open Value Subscription
agreement. If you need licenses with Software Assurance for an additional product, you must place a purchase
order before the end of the month in which you install the copy or copies of the additional product.
Pay for Licenses
Price Protection
Open Value provides price protection for subsequent payments when annual payment option is selected,
regardless of organization-wide commitment. When new additional products are ordered, the price is not
protected. Open Value Subscription also provides price protection for subsequent orders for previously ordered
additional products.
“Price protection” means that Microsoft guarantees the price to the distributor. You agree on final pricing with
your reseller.
Anniversary Order Reminders
If you choose to spread out payments annually on your Open Value Agreement, you will pay for the first year
and the subsequent years on the agreement anniversary dates. Just prior to the anniversary date, you will
receive reminder notices to place your annual order and pay your reseller on a new purchase order. Your
reseller can help you with the part numbers for your orders.
If you have chosen Open Value or Open Value with the Organization-Wide option, then the number of licenses
that you order on your annual purchase order should be at least the same as the total number of licenses
ordered through previous orders.
Open Value Subscription allows you to reduce the number of licenses on each anniversary of the agreement if
the number of desktop PCs has decreased (organization-wide products) or if you need fewer copies
(additional products).
Software Assurance Pro-ration
When you add licenses with Software Assurance or Software Assurance between anniversaries with Open Value
(with or without the Organization-Wide option), you pay for the full year. While no credit is available for
Software Assurance that your organization does not use that year, there is an annual pro-ration offered, so you
pay only for the years you used Software Assurance. For example, if you add licenses in year two of your
agreement, you pay for years two and three.
16
MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE PROGRAM GUIDE
When you add licenses with Software Assurance between anniversaries with Open Value Subscription (which
only needs to be done for additional products—adding licenses for organization-wide products happens on the
agreement anniversary), you pay the annual subscription fee for that year. The subscription fee includes the
license as well as Software Assurance.
Desktop PC Adjustments after Initial Order
Typically with new software licenses, customers pay first and then install the software. With Open Value, you
can install desktop PC products first and pay later with an active agreement. The Open Value Subscription
option enables you to ”true up” (add licenses) or “true down” (reduce the number of licenses) annually with
your year-end report of qualified desktop PCs and adjust payments up or down accordingly. If you are using
fewer qualified desktop PCs on the anniversary of your agreement, you can reduce your total subscription costs.
With Open Value Organization-Wide (perpetual) option, you adjust your desktop PC product license count to
true-up as required, but you cannot true-down.
With the Open Value Non Organization-Wide option, you need to install additional copies of licensed products
in the same month that you purchase them. However, you cannot true down.
Step-ups for Higher Software Version
A step-up is a part number that allows you to trade up to a later software edition—for example, from Microsoft
Office Standard 2010 to Office Professional Plus 2010 or from Windows Server Standard Edition to Windows
Server Enterprise Edition. The step-up for Open Value acknowledges that you had a previous version and allows
you to pay a price differential between the edition license that you bought and the one that you want to buy;
whereas some other Volume Licensing programs require a customer to purchase a new license for the later
version at full cost. Platform products may not change versions during the term of the agreement.
Step-up part numbers are only available through Open Value and Open Value Organization-Wide. If you want
to step-up using your Open Value Subscription Agreement, you simply reduce the number of licenses for the
edition that you used and increase the number of licenses for the edition that you want to use. Note that
synchronizing such a step-up with the anniversary of your agreement helps you reduce cost: You can only
reduce your licenses on the anniversary of the agreement, whereas you must order incremental licenses before
the end of the month in which they are first deployed.
Audit Clause
You must keep all usual and proper records relating to the software products you and your affiliates run.
Microsoft may request that you conduct an internal audit of all Microsoft software products in use throughout
your organization, comparing the number of software products in use to the number of effective licenses issued
in your name, at any time up to one year after the agreement expires. Following any audit, you agree to deliver
to Microsoft a written statement signed by an authorized representative of your organization, certifying that
either you have sufficient licenses or you have ordered sufficient licenses to permit all use disclosed by the
audit. By requesting an internal audit, Microsoft does not waive its rights to enforce this agreement or to
protect its intellectual property by any other means permitted by law.

breach by the other party, on 30 days written notice and with opportunity to correct any issues. If you terminate
