A message from Jim Davis, Associate Vice Chancellor, 
Information Technology:

The University of California Microsoft Consolidated 
Campus Agreement (MCCA) can provide substantial savings 
to UCLA departments using Microsoft products.  The 
deadline to enroll in the MCCA for the 2004-05 Fiscal 
Year is May 14, 2004.  The MCCA is highly customized to 
meet the needs of UC departments and includes numerous 
unprecedented and beneficial features such as:

*Discounted pricing on desktop and server products - 
minimum discount level for desktop products is 14.5%

*No price increase for 3 years

*Pricing based upon number of knowledge worker FTE 
instead of quantity of computers

*Substantial additional price decreases as FTE volume 
grows

*Simplified compliance and administration - no need to 
track installed desktop products per computer

*Desktop products for lab computers at no additional cost

*Flexible payment - pay in 03/04 or 04/05

*Consistent predictable expenses every year

*The right to use current version of covered products - 
upgrade at your own pace

*Work at home rights included at no additional cost

IMPORTANT INFORMATION SESSION ON APRIL 6, 2004
On April 6, 2004, 1:30PM-3:30PM, a presentation to
