Background


In 2016, the
MEGABYTE Act of 2016 was passed. This law requires agencies to get a better
handle on their software licenses, simply due to the extreme financial waste
when it comes to software purchases.


This law
requires that:



each CIO establish a comprehensive inventory of software licenses, track and
maintain such licenses, analyze software usage to make cost-effective
decisions, provide software license management training, establish goals and
objectives of the agency’s software license management program, and consider
the software license management life cycle phases to implement effective
decision-making and incorporate existing standards, processes, and metrics.


Under the
FOIA, I requests various inventories, as mandated, by this law from various
agencies. I will update this list and more come in.
