Microsoft Partner Agreement Partner Center
The agreement can be previewed from July 31. As of September 1, PSC partners will be able to accept the agreement. Indirect resellers must accept Microsoft`s partnership agreement if they connect to the partner center dashboard to access CSP customers. If you are a Resello partner, your Account Manager helps you through this process. On September 1, 2019, the Microsoft Partnership Agreement became available at the Partner Center for Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) partners to verify and accept them. It allows the partner to trade and replaces the following agreements: All CSP partners must accept the Microsoft Partnership Agreement to ensure that their ability to place orders to new or existing customers under the CSP program is not disrupted. After checking the terms with their legal team and the management of the company, it is the global administrator of the CSP client who accepts the agreement at the Partner Center. Indirect sales terms provide that Microsoft can terminate them without reason by notifying your company 30 days before the time limit is set aside. This notification is our written notification that Microsoft intends to terminate your contract without reason effective August 31, 2019.
After that date, the MPA will be the agreement allowing partners to act as indirect resellers as part of the Cloud Solution Provider Program. We advise you to run the MPA as soon as it is available. From September 1, 2019, the agreement will be available in the Partner Center. The partners of the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program will be the first to use the agreement that will replace these agreements: Important update on mandatory security requirements for partners [MFA requirements]: the basic rules will be removed and replaced by security standards [based on Azure Active Directory], a more comprehensive set of protection policies for our customers. All partners must accept Microsoft`s partnership agreement, including indirect Resellers, by January 31, 2020, to ensure that their ability to create new customers or abandon new orders for existing customers in the CSP program is not disrupted. After that date, the Microsoft Partnership Agreement will be required for all CSP program partners. Partners who have not accepted the Microsoft partnership agreement cannot place new orders and are limited to managing existing subscriptions. If you have a Partner Center account, log on to the dashboard. First, check the location of the Partner Center account by clicking on the “Show Your Partner Profile” link on the Dashboard Preview page.
The country is listed in the “Legal Business Profile” section. Then check your user permissions by clicking on the “My Profile” link on the dashboard summary page. At least one of the partner centre authorizations is “global administrator” if your registration is associated with a global administration account.
