Ordanance Survey and Buying Solutions MoU

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Buying Solutions and Ordnance Survey is due to expire on 31 October 2010.  Customers who wish to take advantage of the Ordnance Survey MoU pricing need to order by this date.

A recent review of the pricing and licensing terms of Ordnance Survey data and the launch of OpenData, which makes available a number of Ordnance Survey datasets at no cost at the point of use, means that data is now more widely available to public sector organisations.

A new Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) has been negotiated between Ordnance Survey and Communities and Local Government (CLG) which will be available to central government, local government, health and education sectors in England and Wales from April 2011. 

For further information on the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) please refer to the Ordnance Survey website:
