One of the cornerstones of NERCOMP member benefits is consortium licensing. By joining NERCOMP, member schools pool their buying power for deep discounts on licenses for everything from server and office software to security and cloud storage.Vendors can connect with a huge audience of potential customers with the added convenience of one-stop negotiation and administration. NERCOMP negotiates contract terms and helps to facilitate vendor and NERCOMP member agreements. Actual licenses are directly between members and vendors. For more information, see Legal Note below.

Legal Note:
NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution.

Each member institution signs its contracts with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their contracts reviewed internally by their own counsel.

In addition, NERCOMP often negotiates separate agreements with vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship to the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.
