What is the Microsoft Partner Agreement? Why should I accept the Microsoft Partner Agreement?

As part of the new Microsoft commerce experience, Microsoft is introducing the Microsoft Partner Agreement, that 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.

The new Microsoft Partner Agreement establishes a documented, trusted relationship between partners, customers and Microsoft by providing higher degree of transparency and enabling compliant business practices. The Cloud Solution Provider program will be the first partner channel to leverage the Microsoft Partner Agreement. The goal is to make the contracting experience easier while meeting regulatory obligations and our partners’ expectations of trust.

After reviewing the terms with the legal team and business leadership, it is the global admin of the CSP tenant who accepts the agreement on Partner Center.
