    • Do they have a documented assessment process?  Can they show you completed examples?
    • Can they use Microsoft funding to make the assessment process at no cost to you?
    • Are they a Microsoft managed partner?
    • How many deployments have they completed?  Are they reference able?
    • Can they connect you to Microsoft to discuss their experience?
    • Are they a Microsoft certified Cloud Deployment Partner and Cloud Accelerate Badged?
    • Do they know about Microsoft fast track funding, up to $20K to help customers deploy Office 365?
    • Can they describe the four different migration methods and their pros / cons?
    • Can they describe your single sign-on options?
