The requirement

Following the success of our previous Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA) with Adobe, which was co-termed to expire at the end of March 2023, we needed to provide a replacement solution for existing customers that would also be open to new customers.

The solution 

We negotiated directly with Adobe to establish pricing of commonly purchased products such as Acrobat Pro, Acrobat Standard, and Creative Cloud. Adobe then made this pricing available to all their Platinum Partners for the CCS aggregation.

The aggregated procurement used lot 3 of our Technology Products and Associated Services agreement (RM6068). The most economically advantageous offer in the market was obtained by taking into consideration both price and non-price factors. The further competition was concluded with sealed bids.

The results 

The pricing negotiated with Adobe is based on the aggregate demand across the 93 customers who took part in the aggregation. This amounted to £24.6 million in market value.

The new ETLA runs from 30 March 2023 to 30 March 2026 and offers savings on average of 39.9% compared to market pricing. This is equivalent to a saving of £9.8 million against market pricing for the customers who took part.
