DLSS Licensing and Shared Services

Welcome to DLSS Licensing and Shared Services

Florida Virtual Campus helps to identify, evaluate and coordinate the negotiation of statewide licensing to products and services licensed on behalf of the Distance Learning and Student Services Member Institutions.


Using an annual contract interest survey, our institutional appointed members identify services and products of most importance to them, specifically pertaining to student services and distance learning. Upon collection of those responses, the DLSS members council then votes for the top licenses to be pursued by the FLVC. FLVC, as part of UWF, then follows the legal review and procurement process at UWF to finalize any statewide licenses, contracts or agreements.
