The Apple Maintenance Program is a 3 year agreement to cover upgrades in Apple Macintosh operating system (does not include server OS).
The current agreement is from October 2010 for three years to end of September 2013, with annual charges are per machine covered. We cannot add licenses during the agreement term, but check with Software services as there maybe a couple of licenses available.
Contact software services if you would like to be notified about the next apple maintenance in spring 2013.
The AMP software maintenance is a "stay current" license. You must have a current Mac OS version in order to be covered by the maintenance.
