Microsoft Partner Agreement (MPA) for CSP partners

Appropriate roles

  • Global admin

The Microsoft Partner Agreement provides Microsoft partners with a simple, unified, digitally accepted partner agreement. The Microsoft Partner Agreement contains a core set of perpetual terms that help Microsoft,partners, and customers support data privacy and security, promote compliance, and encourage sound business practices.

Cloud Solution Provider program partners including indirect providers, indirect resellers, and direct bill partners, are all able to complete the signing online in Partner Center. Direct bill and indirect provider partners who operate in the government cloud can also sign the MPA from within Partner Center.

You need to sign the Microsoft Partner Agreement before January 31, 2020 to continue to participate in the CSP program. Partner Center will remind you that you are now able to sign the agreement from within Partner Center, easily.

How to verify if I have signed the MPA

To see if you have signed the MPA:

  • As the global admin for your company, sign in to Partner Center. If you have a notification telling you that you have Pending actions, click on the notification. This will take you to where you can sign the MPA.

[Note] Only the global admin in your company can view and sign the MPA. If you aren't the global admin, you will need to ask your global admin to verify the MPA.
