Microsoft Software Now Available For Home Use for Navy and Marine Corps NMCI Users

The Department of the Navy, through its contract with EDS for NMCI, is entitled to Microsoft's Home Use Program (HUP) as a volume license owner with Microsoft. The HUP allows government civilian and uniformed personnel currently on NMCI to obtain a licensed copy of Microsoft Office, Project or Visio desktop applications to install and use on a home computer, if the products are also currently installed on their NMCI computer. Contractors are ineligible to participate in the HUP program at this time.


NMCI users taking advantage of this offering must abide by the terms set forth by Microsoft's Home Use Rights End User License Agreement (EULA) and are personally responsible for paying the administrative costs for obtaining the software. The DON is not responsible for individual employee compliance with respect to the EULA.

For additional information regarding the Home Use Program and the Home Use EULA, visit the Microsoft Home Use Program - Volume Licensing Web site.

NMCI users can order online at the Microsoft HUP Web site. In order to access this web site, you must use the unique program code provided below. Please retain this program code and do not distribute! The code is your key to these benefits, it is not transferable.

To access the Microsoft HUP site, follow the steps below:

Go to the Microsoft Home Use Program Web site.

There is no cost for the license. However, there is a nominal charge of $9.95 plus local sales tax for an electronic download service, payable via a credit card, of each product ordered. Additionally, if you want backup media, that's an additional charge of $15.00. The employee is responsible for paying that nominal charge per product.
