p.s. I may be mis-reading this, and would appreciate any expert guidance, but looking at the following quote from the posted document:
The reassurance provided by this condition applies where:
(a) Solutions are procured via the mini-competition process
(b) Where customers procure directly from the Framework by identifying the best value solution
(c) Where customers renew with their existing supplier (by identifying the best value solution) specifying the Framework Terms and Conditions
Can point (c) not be exploited somehow? So a school considering becoming academy would be best advised to renew their LA SIMS license before converting, specify the Framework Terms and Conditions, then convert and save some pennies?
Timing is everything it seems!
