From 1st July 2024, Microsoft will begin migrating all CSP partners with government, education, and NFP customers to new commerce (NCE). Partners are encouraged to prioritise migrating all their public sector customers from legacy to new commerce system during the months of January through June 2024, before Microsoft-led migration begins in July. 

Please note 

  • All legacy offers that Microsoft migrates will be set to annual terms by default. Partners will have seven days after migration is complete to change the subscription term, quantity or cancel the subscription if necessary. 
  • This public sector migration will occur on the date of your customer’s subscription renewal, starting with subscriptions set to renew on July 1, 2024, and will continue with all offers renewing throughout calendar years 2024 and 2025. 
  • Microsoft will launch the CSP government, education, and NFP offers in four waves, as shown in the below table. Wave 1 will include the offers with the highest customer volume. The remaining offers will be launched in the subsequent waves. The offers included in each wave will be published in the new commerce license-based price list in the Partner Center Pricing workspace, one month before the launch date. 
Government, Education, and NFP Available in new commerce 
Wave 1 March 1, 2024 
Wave 2 March 1, 2024 
Wave 3 April 1, 2024 
Wave 4 May 1, 2024 

While Microsoft will migrate all offers remaining in the legacy system to new commerce in 2024, the timeline for Microsoft-led migration of commercial offers is different than the timeline for public sector offers. To clarify the differences, here are the key dates for each migration effort: 

CSP offers Available in new commerce Microsoft-led migration begins for offers renewing on this date 
Commercial SKUs Now January 11, 2024 
Education, Not-for-profit (NFP), Government Starting January 1, 2024 July 1, 2024
