Amazon Web Services accounts moving to direct contract with Amazon – Virginia Tech Daily

The Division of IT’s Collaborative Computing Solutions unit will work with account holders to migrate accounts ahead of this change.
27 Oct 2021
From: Division of Information Technology
Virginia Tech is moving its contract for Amazon Web Services (AWS) from DLT, a value-added reseller, to a direct contract with AWS made available through the Texas-based Department of Information Resources (DIR).  All AWS account holders should take note of the specifics of this change, and actions required prior to the Dec. 20 changeover.
Highlights to contract changes include the following: 
The Division of IT will continue to manage consolidated billing and invoicing through Information Technology Procurement and Licensing Solutions (ITPALS) and brokering of cloud accounts and services through CCS.
If CCS currently manages your AWS account (i.e., we maintain the root account), we will migrate your account for you. We will work with each account holder individually to schedule a time that works best for you to complete the migration.
If CCS does not manage your AWS account, please open a 4Help ticket, with a request for CCS to schedule your migration as soon as possible to avoid losing your account when the contract with DLT ends. As part of the migration process, CCS will take on the management of your account, so that it is no longer managed by DLT. Please note that on Dec. 20, 2021, any Virginia Tech AWS accounts that CCS does not manage will be shut down by DLT. 
New AWS account requests can be made through the IT Service Catalog. For questions about the AWS contract change, or for general IT support, please visit 4help.vt.edu or call the Help Desk at 540-231-4357.
