    I think I've got this right, but it's worth checking:

    If you end the agreement at the end of the year, then you have to purchase the licences at the select agreement pricing.

    If you end an agreement partway through, the buyout cost is 1.75x the payment.

    Could be completely wrong though.

    Nah, just carry on using the Schools agreement. Do you have more staff than computers then?

    Blimey - I was hoping it would be a bit cheaper than £72.65! I think our current pack is around £26 per workstation so I thought they'd have doubled the cost but not nearly treble!

    We'll still save but not as much as I'd hoped!

    What's your FTE?

    Our FTE is 117 and the licenses came back at something like £8500 for the year, before on the old agreement we were paying £15,500 for the year covering 600 PCs (all rounded / slightly estimated figures but quite close to accurate)

    If it's just for desktop I wouldn't expect you to be paying more than £40 per FTE on EES

    Ahhhhhhhhhh it's £55.95 per license FTE

    The additional cost is coming from other addons, sorry that was my managers fault for giving me false information

    Don't think i see any harm in posting these figures.... we were looking to play off the people who gave us this price against another company to see if we can get it cheaper though

    Is that just for Desktop... or have you got other licenses (Visio, SQL CAL, etc)?
