The OPN Benefits listed above are available to OPN members subject to the terms of the OPN Policies, the OPN Agreement and any applicable addenda or amendments.  Availability of benefits is subject to regional restrictions.  In the event that this Benefits Table indicates that a benefit is to be made available in Oracle’s sole discretion, Oracle’s determination regarding the availability of such benefit is final. 

U.S. and Canada:  Partners in the U.S. and Canada may include transactions with public sector entities for the purposes of achieving Specialization status. However, transactions with public sector entities will not be included in determining any benefit associated with either Specialization or Oracle PartnerNetwork membership (other than Specialization status and use of the associated logo) that is based on the number of transactions, revenue amounts, or any other metric based on sales. Public sector entities include any government, legislature or decision making body, judiciary, court, instrumentality, department, or agency at any level (national, state, city, local, municipal or otherwise); entities managed, controlled or majority owned by government interests; public organizations or foundations of any kind (including political parties, political organizations, or political candidates); and any public international organization, such as, but not limited to, the International Red Cross, United Nations, or the World Bank; and public utilities,  public higher education, public K-12 schools, or public healthcare business entities. Availability of Specialization Benefits and Tools is subject to the OPN Policies.

Oracle PartnerNetwork members are responsible for reviewing the Benefit Decommissioning Policy.

Oracle reserves the right to correct errors or omissions in the OPN Benefits table at any time and at Oracle's sole discretion.

Partners that have not migrated to OPN Specialized in November 2009 or later are eligible for benefits that can be accessed at http://www.oracle.com/ocom/groups/public/@opnpublic/documents/webcontent/019737.pdf
