Software license agreements

The use of all software is subject to a license agreement. This license agreement may have several names (EULA, ELA, EA, CLP, etc.); it may even appear as a click-through on a web site. At a high level, a license agreement sets forth the terms and conditions related to the use of the software program;  it's the list of what the end user can or cannot do with the software, and often sets forth the consequences for violating the agreement.

Each authorized purchaser is responsible for ensuring it has a license agreement that meets the state's (or for non-state agencies, the authorized purchasers) requirements for all software that is in use by its employees, contractors or agents.

The information technology SVARs are contractually obligated to assist authorized purchasers in establishing acceptable license agreements.

License agreements must be reviewed and approved by the DOJ if the value exceeds the threshold for legal sufficiency review and approval, if the agreement is planned for statewide use, or if not otherwise exempt.

Existing agreements and templates

​Over-arching license agreements applicable to software applications or programs that may be purchased by an authorized purchaser. The purchase of the software application or program itself may be covered by the existing statewide agreement.

HPTerms of useAt this time, we [HPE] are not ready to pursue a master license EULA agreement with the State. We may consider on a pre-order basis, however it is predicated by what is being ordered. As we move more toward solution selling, EULA's could evolve and we don't want to be locked in to one master EULA.
