Microsoft Partner Agreement

From 1 September 2019, the agreement will be available in the Partner Center. Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program partners will be the first to benefit from the agreement that will replace these agreements: as part of this commerce experience, Microsoft is expanding its commerce platform to optimize the customer experience, enabling partners to extend their influence and help customers in digital transformation. All Cloud Solution Provider partners (including indirect vendors, indirect resellers, and direct billing partners) can sign the MPA online in the Partner Center. Direct and indirect billing partners active in the government cloud can also sign the MPA in the Partner Center. On August 30, 31, 2019, Microsoft sent all Microsoft CSP partners a non-renewal notice regarding “Official Notice and Transitional Terms for the Microsoft Partnership Agreement” and informed its CSP partners that the “Indirect Reseller Terms and Conditions” (the “Indirect Reseller Terms”) will be terminated with effect from August 31, 2019. Here`s an example of the mailing sent to indirect CSP resellers: Important update to mandatory security requirements for partners [AMF requirements]: Basic guidelines are removed and replaced with security standards [based on Azure Active Directory], a broader set of protection policies for our customers. The agreement will be available for preview from July 31. From September 01, the CPMP partners will be able to accept the agreement. Indirect resellers must accept Microsoft`s partnership agreement when they sign up for the Partner Center dashboard to access CSP customers. You must provide an official company email address linked to the legal name of the registered company and the address of the company that you will integrate into the Partner Center as an indirect reseller. Important Note: Email addresses of web-based email services, including onmicrosoft.com addresses, are not accepted. Microsoft will, however, do its best to work with you if you don`t have an official company email address…
