The Software Licensing Program (SLP) was established in January 1994 and is administered by the Department of General Services, Procurement Division. Extensive software discounts are negotiated with major software publishers that are then passed on to the State, through the SLP contracts established with authorized participating re-sellers.

The Software Licensing Program is a manufacturer centric contract vehicle that Carahsoft distributes through to assist with the procurement of software for the state of California. Carahsoft is always looking to promote new manufacturers and value add resale partners to this vehicle, if there is an interest in pursuing a SLP contract or become a partner upon it please contact either the Software Licensing Program office at or Carahsoft at
