With the FY16 Office 365 Adoption Offer, part of the FastTrack program, Microsoft is investing in driving active seat usage for customers who buy at least 50 qualifying Office 365 SKUs and set up a new tenant between September 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016. Qualifying customers will receive funds that go towards consulting services with eligible Microsoft Silver or Gold Level Cloud Productivity Competency Partners, such as FMT Consultants. Funds will be reserved at $15/seat for 150-1000 seats and $5/seat above 1000 seats with a maximum of $60,000 per customer.
*UPDATE: Effective February 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016, a 50 seat minimum purchase of eligible SKUs is required. Funding will be reserved at $25/seat for 1-149 seats.
New purchases of Office 365 SKUs including E Suites (E1, E3, E4, E5), Office 365 ProPlus, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business Online, OneDrive Online, Yammer Enterprise SKUs, Government Plans (G1, G3, G4, G5), paid Academic SKUs, K SKUs, Non-Profit SKUs, and Gallatin SKUs may be eligible for funding. The 150 seat minimum purchase requirement may be met by a combination of eligible SKUs.
In order to ensure that you are getting the full Office 365 experience, Microsoft requires 15% of the purchased seats to be in active use on a single eligible workload.
