KCC entered into an Enterprise Licensing Agreement with Microsoft via its reseller in June 2018 for three years. Since the contract was awarded Microsoft have made available a discounted licencing arrangement over a new 3 year term. This agreement provides access to a variety of M365 applications, tools and modules which are essential to supporting the Councils business operations. As part of this arrangement the Council will be able to take advantage of enhanced licensing which is critical to support its COVID -19 response including a transition from Skype to Teams and enhancing the security of KCC’s infrastructure.
