Academia have worked closely with Members over the past 4 years as the first ranked supplier for the “Adobe” Lot and “Other Software” Lot. This has resulted in significant growth of member spend via the SLRA and allowed us to offer procurement support and services to complement our pre and post sales services. 

What does this mean for Members?
Members can now direct award any application (excluding Microsoft) and any software service to Academia and retain compliance. Lots 4 and 5 are multi-vendor and Academia can offer further support by acting as an extension to your procurement team, engaging suppliers and even running tenders in conjunction with Members.

What is Academia doing to further support Members?
To ensure we emulate the historical success of supplying through this Framework, Academia have added additional resource through new product specialists to ensure we can proactively support customers across all Lots from conception, through procurement and post-sales support. This includes new product teams for Microsoft, Adobe and VMware as well as enhancements to existing services.
