Role responsible for Microsoft Office 365 free licenses
From: Dave Lane
Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
I am trying to work out which role in government made the decision to offer school students (e.g. at my local high school) "free" licenses for Microsoft Office 365. I would also like to know when it was made. Is it a role within DIA? If not, please inform me where this decision was made.
