Microsoft Educational licensing prices

SKDTech
I am working on a report for a class I am taking and I am having difficulty locating any kind of guide to what rates MS charges educational institutions to license Windows and Office (Word/Excel/Powerpoint).

If there is anyone with experience in the sales or purchase of MS products for schools I would appreciate the assistance.

    They can recommend where on their Country Web Site you can get what you need.

    Thank you.

    I tried to find information on their site but they just keep referring to resellers to get a quote. I don't want to waste a salespersons time when all I need is an idea of what the costs are for a paper that will be forgotten by all involved as soon as the semester is complete.

    Contact a volume retailer. The markdowns are significant and complicated. We pay about $75 for Office 2010 pro on a campus agreement. The price will change based on the type of agreement and the size of the institution. If I remember Windows 7 pro is about $100 per copy. MS licensing can get complicated in a real hurry.

    That seems like the information I am looking for. I don't need hard numbers just an estimate I can use for a baseline cost projection. The numbers are only needed to support an argument I am making in a paper rather than a serious inquiry.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the response, however that program does not seem to cover what I am looking for.

    Obviously these won't be the lowest prices available especially to large organisations, but it probably gives you an indication of what can be achieved even at small quantities.
