Adobe Linked VIP Framework

6 May 2016 Print

Licensing of latest versions of Adobe Creative Cloud

The Chest Adobe Linked VIP Select Agreement is a framework that consolidates the purchases of all its members to achieve the highest levels of discount available under Adobe’s Educational VIP scheme. Currently, there are four levels of discount based on the following volumes of licence purchase:

Banding Licence
Additional discount
above Level 1
Level 1 1 – 49 N/A
Level 2 50 – 249 12%
Level 3 250 – 999 18%
Level 4 1,000+ 40%

In the UK it’s unlikely that any Institution will reach the top tier of discount, as any university/college purchasing that volume of licences would probably find the Chest Adobe ETLA Agreement more cost effective.

How does the Agreement work?

The Agreement offers Level 4 pricing for all sites.

How much does the Agreement cost to join?

The annual fee for joining the Agreement is £0.

Licence type

Volume subscription licence with non-standard terms and conditions.
