Enterprise Software Agreements
Discounted savings for DoD components, Intel Community
By DoD ESI Navy Software Program Managers - July-September 2015
Enterprise Software Agreements
Updated July 21, 2015

The DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) is an official DoD initiative sponsored by the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) to lead in the establishment and management of enterprise COTS IT agreements, assets, and policies. DoD ESI lowers the total cost of ownership across the DoD, Coast Guard and Intelligence Communities for commercial software, IT hardware, and services.

DoD ESI was formed in 1998 by Chief Information Officers at the Department of Defense to save time and money on commercial software. A joint team of experts (Software Product Managers or SPMs) consolidates requirements and negotiates with commercial software publishers, hardware sellers and IT service providers resulting in a unified contracting and vendor management strategy across the entire department.

In its first ten years of operation, DoD ESI achieved a cost avoidance of over $3 Billion off prices established on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule by negotiating discounts of as much as 86% off list prices for software, hardware and services. Smart purchasing practices yields better contracting terms and conditions for DoD programs.

For more information on the ESI or to obtain product information, visit the ESI website at www.esi.mil.

For assistance please contact a Software Product Manager at http://www.esi.mil/AskAnExpert.aspx.

Information and links reflect guidance for Department of the Navy personnel. For contracts and information pertinent to the other services, DISA, other DoD and federal agencies, please go to the ESI website at www.esi.mil.

Renewal of DON Microsoft Enterprise Licensing Agreement Signed
The Department of the Navy Enterprise Software Licensing (DON ESL) team awarded a follow-on Blanket Purchase Agreement to the first agreement for Microsoft licenses and software assurance (SA) on 15 May 2015. The effective date of the agreement is 01 June and will support the renewal of SA and procurement of new Microsoft brand software licenses with SA, subscriptions and SA-step up (SASU) for desktop and server based products.

The agreement, valid through 2018, continues to consolidate previously purchased Microsoft licenses used across the enterprise; and, therefore, optimizes cost savings by leveraging the full purchasing capacity of the department. Acquired licenses and SA must be compatible and interoperable with existing DON hardware and technology equipment. The estimated value of the BPA, including the base period and two option periods, is 543.72 million.

Ordering guidance: All Navy and Marine Corps procurement actions for information technology software must go through their respective processes identified at the Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) PMM-110 portal page . Since this is a dynamic environment, other policies may be added with little notice. Information about ordering products via other DON ELAs can also be found at this site.

Use of DON ELAs, where available, is mandatory by all DON organizations and programs per the joint memo "Mandatory Use of DON Enterprise Licensing Agreements," which was signed Feb. 22, 2012, by the Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer, the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research Development and Acquisition, and the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Financial Management and Comptroller.
