Many organizations within NASA make small software purchases and can’t take advantage of large volume software licensing discounts. I would like to see a NASA-wide or government-wide approach to software licensing. Government users should be able to register at a government website, and then download software and associated licenses without any cost assuming a NASA-wide or government-wide license. Users should also be able to make requests for software to be added to the suite of available software.
