SAS Software License Agreement

SAS Enterprise Software License for the State of North Carolina

SAS and the State of NC entered its partnership to offer an Enterprise Software License to NC government agencies in December 2004. As the State standard for Data Integration, Business Intelligence, and Advanced Analytics, the SAS Enterprise Agreement currently provides access to the full suite of its products and solutions to NC government agencies. These products and solutions may be licensed on a variety of operating systems and platforms, including servers, mainframes and desktop licensing.

SAS Licensing Information for State Agencies

The SAS Enterprise License Agreement for the State of North Carolina is administered by the NC Department of Information Technology (DIT). Our Office works with State agencies that utilize the Enterprise Agreement on an annual basis to determine what licensing and software maintenance requirements exist and negotiates the Agreement at the aggregate level to obtain the lowest fees for the State. Each agency is then responsible for paying its portion of the fees. Generally these fees are discounted substantially for participating North Carolina government customers.
