Lot 2 – Adobe:

            Lot 2A - ETLA – site licences, multi-site or unlimited

            Lot 2B - CLP Agreement (perpetual licenses), VIP Agreement (named user/device licenses) and other adobe products.

Lot 4 - Other – miscellaneous and commercial off-the-shelf software and associated services.

Lot 5 - Software services including but not limited to: software asset management, auditing, cloud services and consultancy.

Building on the success of the previous framework, this new framework agreement continues to offer a wide range of suppliers to choose from and enables members to buy a range of products through single source options.
