Is there a way to disable the sky drive connections for a network install of Office 2013. My organization is not cloud based and has office users who get e-mail but are not allowed internet access. How can Office 2013 be installed yet not have all the cloud based integrations?

You need to have an Internet connection to install Retail Office 2013. I got Office "365" which was in reality Office 2013 by subscription and the install is via Internet.

After that, just use it locally and do not use Sky Drive. I do that. I use it all locally on my ThinkPad and do not use SkyDrive. It works fine this way.

You can customize Office before deploying.

There's plenty of info here:

Group Policy can be used to turn features off too with the Office 2013 admx templates.
