Government / Public Sector Employees

Microsoft does not wish to create any violation of the letter or spirit of its customers' applicable gifts and ethics rules.

If registering for a discounted or complimentary pass:
Government/public sector employees registering with a discounted registration rate (i.e. any rate less than the current prevailing full price) are required to have their ethics officer sign and submit a waiver to retain the discounted price, food, and business use items. The waiver form and instructions for submitting the waiver are available once the registrant has completed the registration process.

The Academic Faculty/Staff and Student passes are discounted passes. If an attendee registers with the academic discount rate and is a government employee, s/he must provide a signed copy of the discount waiver in addition to the required documentation (if applicable). The required waiver is available online during the registration process on the  Confirmation page of the registration. Waivers must be signed and submitted prior to the event ,or the discount rate will increase to the full conference rate.

The Bulk Registration Discount is considered a discount for all registrants from the same organization. Any registrant who has registered on a registration code provided them as part of the Bulk Registration Discount offer and who is a government/public sector employee must provide a signed copy of the discount waiver. The required waiver is available online during the registration process on the Confirmation page of the registration. A single waiver can be submitted, including all attendees' names on the same form. Waivers must be signed and submitted prior to the event, or all members from the organization will pay the full conference rate.

Government/public sector employees registering with a complimentary registration rate (registration fee is $0.00) are required to have their ethics officer sign and submit a waiver to retain the complimentary pass, food, and business use items. Those registering with a complimentary pass are not eligible to receive personal use items. The required waiver is available online during the registration process on the Confirmation page of the registration. Waivers must be signed and submitted prior to the event or the complimentary rate will increase to the full conference rate.

If registering for a full-price conference pass (not discounted):
Government/public sector employees registering at the prevailing full price registration rate will receive all personal items onsite (e.g. bag, shirt, etc.) and are not required to sign an ethics waiver, as these items are included in the registration fee.
