Information
RECOMMENDATION
Rescind approval of agreement with Microsoft on August 3, 2016 acknowledging participation of Nueces County in the Software Asset Management (SAM) engagement; Approve (new) agreement with Microsoft acknowledging participation of Nueces County in the Software Asset Management (SAM) engagement.
BACKGROUND
Anglepoint is an auditing company hired by Microsoft to conduct 3rd party investigations of license usage. Nueces County was contacted by Anglepoint late in 2015 to conduct a license audit pursuant our Microsoft Licensing agreement. Microsoft confirmed the validity of the audit request in a letter to Judge Neal on February 1, 2016.
DISCUSSION
This agreement acknowledges to Microsoft that we are participating in a Software Asset Management (SAM) engagement with Anglepoint and funded by Microsoft. Complications with Microsoft's submission of their 1295 delayed delivery of the previous agreement past Microsoft's fiscal year.  Microsoft requires Nueces County to sign another nearly identical agreement, with no change in wording, that reflects their new obligation to Anglepoint.  As an added bonus, they have extended our final deadline 45 days.
