February likely timeframe for G2003

Government agencies are negotiating a replacement optional licensing agreement with Microsoft.

Department of Internal Affairs information and facilities manager Alison Fleming says software licensing negotiations taking place between the government and Microsoft probably won’t be concluded until February.

Fleming heads a team of eight government agency representatives who are in talks with the software company to come up with an agreement to replace the G2000 group contract.

G2003, the contract which will be finalised early next year, will be optional and have three tiers under which agencies can buy, depending on their size, Enterprise Agreement, Select Agreement and Open Government Agreement licences.

Around 160 organisations representing more than 90,000 users have signed up as having an interest in the negotiations.
