Yesterday, I mentioned discounts on software for Department employees. It turns out Microsoft licenses for State personnel are limited to the MS Office Suite and Office for Mac. The other product licenses ran out over a year ago.
It's still worth checking out if you're a Department of State Employee or other federal employee. This program is not well known within the Department. I usually send out a reminder when I work overseas to let new hires know and remind other staff. To find out how to get it, State folks can search for the internal link within our intranet by typing "Microsoft Home Use Program". The first Diplopedia link will take you there and walk you through what you need to do.
Upon leaving the Department's employ, all staff are required to remove the software from their personal computer and destroy associated media.
