The new Adobe CLP 2019 has been fully executed.

NERCOMP has renewed their Contractual License Program (CLP) with Adobe Systems Inc. Adobe’s CLP 5.0 is a flexible licensing program that enables NERCOMP members to purchase Adobe software products and receive the discounts and benefits of a large-volume purchase without having to make large upfront expenditures. NERCOMP members are thus able to receive substantial discounts over and above the existing standalone educational prices provided by Adobe (25-30% off TLP (Transactional License Program) and 65% off academic boxed products).

CLP 5.0 is a two-year license agreement with Adobe Systems, Inc. to provide discounted Adobe products and services to NERCOMP member institutions through software reseller Software House International (SHI). Software products purchased through this program come with perpetual licenses. Maintenance services are purchased for the duration of the CLP.

Perpetual Licenses are available for most all of the non Creative Adobe products. There is also optional maintenance available for the following products:

  • Acrobat Professional - Adobe Media Svr Ext - Adobe Media Svr Pro
  • Adobe Media Svr Std - Adobe Technical Suite - Captivate
  • ColdFusion Ent - ColdFusion Standard - Coldfusion Builder
  • Contribute - Contribute Pub Server - Director
  • FB Premium for PHP - Flash Builder Prem - FrameMaker
  • Lightroom - PHSP & PREM Elements - Photoshop Elements
  • Premiere Elements- Presenter Licensed - RoboHelp Office
  • Learning Suite

Creative Cloud and individual applications are available via Device and User Based subscription.

All orders, request for quotes and questions can be directed to SHI.

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. Any license or agreement accessed or entered into as a benefit of a Consortium Member’s NERCOMP membership is contingent on that institution remaining an active NERCOMP member for the full term of the license or agreement.  For example, if a license agreement lasts for a 3 year term, then the Consortium Member must renew its annual NERCOMP membership at least twice to remain an active Consortium Member for the full 3 year term. Failure of a Consortium Member to timely renew its NERCOMP membership status during the term of the license or agreement may result in either a) termination of the license or agreement or b) loss of the discount pricing available exclusively to NERCOMP Consortium members.

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.

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

Archival materials on this site are not necessarily accessible. NERCOMP will timely respond to any specific requests to make any specific document accessible.
