Building on the GPA Core Terms, the Device Partner Terms (DPT), pertain to sublicensing and distribution of Microsoft products with devices.

Channel Partner Terms (CPT) pertain to sublicensing and distribution of Microsoft products with devices.

Program Appendixes (PAX) provide an additional layer of specificity regarding methods of sublicensing and distributing Microsoft products with devices. The Program Appendix corresponds to your business model and is related to the Microsoft products you choose to sublicense and distribute with devices. Program Appendixes must be combined with the Core Terms and Device Partner Terms or Channel Partner Terms.

Program Execution Guides

Program Execution Guides (PEG) contain operational details, policies, and requirements related to a given Program (e.g., OEM, IoT, ODM).

Product Terms and Price Lists

The Product Terms document is a compilation of all product-specific additional terms. The Price List complements the Product Terms document and lists all products currently available for license, applicable product fees, and indicates the additional terms that are applicable to each product.
