SUBJECT:         Opt-In Agreement for EDS Software



A few weeks ago I sent a memo describing the EDS software donation to Maine schools. In order to obtain the Solid Edge software you will need to sign the attached Opt-In Agreement and return it to the department by March 30, 2003.The agreement describes the responsibilities that the schools must assume as a participant. Once the Department has received the signed agreement it will be sent to EDS. They will send you a license agreement.When EDS receives a signed copy of the license agreement they will send you the software.The Opt-In Agreement form is below.
