The Microsoft Partnership Agreement (MPA) is the new Microsoft Agreement for all Microsoft partners. This new agreement will be modular. The terms and conditions depend on your organization`s relationship with Microsoft, the type of partner, and the offers your organization can sell. Working with an indirect provider allows you to offer your customers a wider choice of Microsoft`s cloud-based services and solutions. Indirect vendors have the systems and infrastructure to provide a robust level of billing and support. If you rely on them in this way, you can focus on your technology solutions and customer connections. Microsoft integrates several different agreements into a new, simple and unique agreement. The new agreement aims to build trust between partners, customers, and Microsoft and build trust between partners, customers, and Microsoft by providing a greater degree of transparency and compliant business practices. The new agreement aims to improve data protection, security and compliance requirements and to clarify and strengthen the rights and obligations of partners in response to regulatory requirements.

In principle, Microsoft is moving from a number of different agreements to a new agreement, while updating them for new and future rules, as well as for data protection and compliance laws. Find the indirect reseller to which you want to assign new customers, and then select Add new customers. Note that the indirect reseller is already selected for you on the customer detail form. Specify the customer details, and then select Next: Subscriptions. Microsoft`s partners in the Microsoft CSP Partner Channel Program will be the first Microsoft partners to work with the new agreement. These include CSP Direct Bill partners, CSP indirect suppliers, multi-animal partners and CSP indirect resellers. In short, all Microsoft partners who operate in the Microsoft CSP program. Before they can work with resellers, they must be registered as indirect resellers in the CSP program and have Partner Center accounts. Refer your resellers to partners with indirect suppliers in CSP for information on CSP registration. Manage your relationships with Microsoft, customers, and indirect resellers in one place For more information about what is required to participate in the CSP program as an indirect reseller, see Getting started as an indirect reseller on the Microsoft Partner Network site.

Partnering with an indirect vendor means you don`t need to have the infrastructure to enter the market or buy directly from Microsoft, but instead you can work with an experienced technology provider to ensure your success. . . .
