The following note pertains to units and individuals who use Esri/ArcGIS Software (students who are not working on a grant-funded project are exempt):
The time has come to pay your fair share for our annual Esri/ArcGIS site license. Please visit the Request for Service – IT Software Licenses webform to renew your geospatial software for FY 2014-15. If you’re not sure if you’ve done this you probably haven’t! If you do not pay for the software you’re using, you’ll be forcing the cost onto other departments in the form of higher prices. The cost this year has increased slightly to $175 from $165.
If you are in a department or center which purchases multiple licenses for various individuals, you should contact your local IT Pro or administrative professional who handles purchases. They often prefer to pay for the licenses at one time.
