Most department members purchase annual SPSS Statistics licenses, through UBC IT. In past years, UBC IT has contracted with IBM (owners of SPSS), for SPSS Statistics desktop licenses that expired on March 31 (+ 30 day grace period) and UBC IT Okanagan, has contracted with IBM for SPSS Statistics network licenses and ran the network license server. The SPSS Statistics network licence contract had an annual expiry of May 31 (+ 30 day grace).
In an effort to combine the two purchase contracts into one larger one and reduce campus community confusion about expiry dates, a decision was made last year to provide SPSS Statistics desktop for 14 months, at the price of 12 months. Expiry dates of both desktop and network versions are now May 31 (+ 30 day grace).
Some computers are confusingly displaying May 1 as the expiry date. We have been assured that they will continue to work until July 30 (end of the grace period) and in any event renewed license activation codes are expected to be distributed to you before the end of May.
