MICROSOFT ENTERPRISE LICENSE AGREEMENT (MSELA) FORMERLY HOME USE PROGRAM (MSHUP) INFORMATION PAGE
On 6 Dec 2012 the Microsoft Joint Enterprise License Agreement (MSJELA) was awarded by the Army Contracting Command - National Capital Region to Insight, Inc. By working with the joint services team of Army, Air Force, and DISA, the Army was able to leverage the buying power of more than 2 million users to negotiate more favorable contract terms for all parties. Because the contract was awarded to a new vendor, revised instructions for ordering and downloading software have been developed by Army CIO/G6 and are published via the CHESS website (link below, PLEASE read information in between prior to clicking button).
