How to buy Azure Government

Azure Government is available to purchase from an Azure Government licence solution provider (LSP) with no upfront financial commitment. If you want to try Azure Government before you buy, sign up for a free Azure Government trial.

Buy through your licensing partner

LSPs are advisors in how to procure and manage Microsoft licensing and cloud services. They understand the government cloud ecosystem and may have a history of your purchases so they can work with what you have as a starting point for success. Talk with the person in your organisation who manages procurement to find out which LSP you may be working with already.

These partners understand Microsoft licensing options for government, and they can advise you on the most appropriate procurement process and help you get started.
