Microsoft partners offer a unique perspective on working in government, and they can help you choose the solution that best fit your specific needs.

Licensing partners, also called licensing solution provider (LSPs), are advisors in how to procure and manage Microsoft licensing. They understand the government marketplace, and they have a history of your purchases so they can work with what you have as a starting point for success. Talk with the person in your department who manages procurement to find out which license partner may be working with your agency.
