Victorian Government Purchasing Board
Achieving Excellence in Government Procurement


The enterprise licensing agreement (ELA) is a contract entered into by the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) as the lead department and VMware Pty Ltd. The ELA sets out the terms under which the VMware Server Virtualisation (SV) software licences can be leveraged by the participating departments and agencies (buyers), and the costs of annual maintenance.

SV products improve the efficiency and utilisation of computer servers.

All procurement activities with VMware are to be transacted via VMware's approved reseller, Data #3 Ltd.

The ELA with VMWare was extended on the 30 June 2016 for a period of 12 months.


The ELA is a vehicle to aggregate the demand across buyers to improve the total cost of ownership of VMware products. It improves the value for money outcomes for buyers and reduces commercial risk.  

The ELA enables an efficient, streamlined and productive engagement process with VMware that reduces the time and resources needed by buyers to negotiate individual end user licence agreements for each transaction.
