The Software Licensing Division is responsible for the procurement of software and related services for the federal government.

For government client departments, this site is designed to provide information about how to procure software and related services. The Software Licensing Supply Arrangement (SLSA) is our new method of supply where you can access information on COTS software products and maintenance and support available through the SLSA Catalogue.

The Software Licensing Supply Arrangement (SLSA) has superseded the exiting PWGSC Departmental Individual Standing Offers (DISOs) for commercial off-the-shelf software and related software maintenance and support.
