There is no truth to the rumor that terminating an Enterprise Agreement and/or dropping Software Assurance results in a Microsoft audit. It does, however, spotlight the company in the eyes of the rep who will have likely lost a considerable amount of compensation because of it. Humans are humans, after all, and perhaps an internal flag is waved resulting in an audit. It’s a big “maybe,” but it looms large. What’s more, the replacement rep will have the record of the Client foregoing an Enterprise Agreement renewal and initiate an audit. But there may be ways to avoid that.
