We Know GCC High
Microsoft AOS-G Licensing Experts
Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is complicated, and navigating federal information protection requirements is just as complex. The wrong Microsoft Licensing can derail your CMMC and NIST efforts, and leave users, information, and your environment at risk. Agile IT has been a Microsoft partner since 2004, and was among the first partners chosen to license Azure Government, GCC, and GCC High.
The Agreement for Online Services – Government (AOS-G) program was created to support federal, defense, and aerospace contractors needing to meet enhanced cybersecurity controls with GCC High. As an AOS-G partner, our mission is to make sure our clients don’t just get what they want, they get what they need.

Understanding AOS-G Licensing
The AOS-G program is the only way for companies to purchase GCC-High Licensing for under 500 users. As a modified enterprise agreement, it is different from commercial in a number of ways.
- Licenses Available: GCC High does not have commercial style Business Premium licensing. These license types are insufficient to meet NIST 800-171 controls, so they are not offered. Instead, Microsoft 365 enterprise license types F1, E3, E5, etc are supported.
- Cost: Given the additional security and compliance services provided by Microsoft GCC High licensing is approximately 70% more costly that equivalent commercial licensing.
- Agreement Term: GCC High is licensed via a modified Enterprise Agreement, as such, licenses must be purchased for one-year at a time. During that year, licenses and add-ons can be added and reassigned, but they cannot be removed.
Mistakes when licensing GCC High can be costly, don’t risk going with the wrong partner.
