I know Ning is working on this and working on GSA schedule.
The person to reach is Peter Slutsky at Ning - he is the govt POC - "Peter Slutsky" ,
I'd also wonder if that is really true. Usually you pay for software licenses ahead of time - not after used them the whole year. I don't think any different than buying Adobe, MS, or other software packages.
What's the Ning site for work?
