New Software License Reseller Agreement Live

New Software License Reseller Agreement Live

The new national Software License Resellers Agreement is now live and ready for SUPC members to use.  The agreement, which will run from 1 December for 3 years with the option to extend for 12 months, gives members access to an EU-compliant route to market for Microsoft, Adobe, VMWare and a range of other software licenses and associated services.  A new addition to this agreement is the inclusion of a lot dedicated to software services, which will provide institutions with access to software auditing services, asset management and professional consultancy services.

 

The agreement offers access to 11 individual suppliers including several incumbents well versed in supplying the HE sector along with four new suppliers (complete list of appointed suppliers below).  An estimated £100 million is expected to be spent through this agreement, representing a significant opportunity for members to gain value through collaborative procurement.
