On an annual basis, Microsoft will review your actual purchase history for the preceding 12 months against the forecasted price level for each product pool. For the first year end review, Microsoft will check to see If 1/3 of the total forecast was met to determine whether the price level needs to be reset. For the second year end review Microsoft will check that 2/3 of the forecast was met. Depending on the actual purchase history, your price level may be releveled upwards, downwards, or remain the same.
• Your purchase history is checked after the first and second year of the agreement term and, if necessary releveled according to the appropriate Select License price level.
• If you have purchased, at the 12 month and 24 month check, 1/3 & 2/3, of a higher pricing level you will be releveled upwards.
• If you have purchased less than the milestone quantity of the three year forecast, you will be releveled downwards.
When you choose the Select License program you will have multiple ways of acquiring and paying for your licenses. The first option is to pay for your licenses at the time of acquisition. The other option enables you to split the payment of Software Assurance (SA) or the License & Software Assurance (L&SA) into equal payments for the balance of your Select License term. When you choose this option, you will break down the price of the SA or L&SA Into payments based on when during the term of the Select License agreement you made the acquisition. For example, If you make the acquisition during the first year of the agreement, you will have one payment at the time of purchase and two additional payments at the start of the second and third year of the term of your agreement. Each payment will be equal and is not affected by price changes during the term.
