This tender is for the supply of software licenses via resellers to cover (Windows, Adobe, VMware and other miscellaneous) software sold via resellers but to also accommodate deals that may be in place directly with manufacturers. Institutions purchase much of their software from resellers and it is expected that Framework resellers will provide added value services. The Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC) awards and manages framework agreements for the higher education sector and is acting as lead organisation on behalf of its members and also for members of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC), North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC), the Higher Education Purchasing Consortium Wales (HEPCW), Advanced Procurement for universities and Colleges Ltd (APUC) and Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC). A full list of the participating Consortia members is available on the Consortia websites. All agreements resulting from this tender should be made available to and apply to all current and future members of the participating consortia. They should also apply to any member of any other Higher Education (HE) or Further Education (FE) purchasing consortium or any other higher education institution in the United Kingdom providing that they formally commit to participate in and support this Framework. SUPC will only grant permission at the request of the consortium, or an institution if it is not a member of a consortium.
