On receipt of the signed and completed Addendum to IBM Quotation Terms & Conditions (see below “How to order”) and an Institution Purchase Order sites will be invoiced for the Agreement year in which the Licence is signed. For the subsequent years, Sites will be invoiced one month in advance of the anniversary date of their enrolment to the Agreement.
Prices exclude VAT. All purchase orders must be made out to IBM and payments must be paid within 30 calendar days of the date of invoice. Thirty day terms supersede any other terms provided on quotations, purchase orders, etc.
Start date: 1 August 2010
End date: 31 July 2013
All licence periods are for three years, unless three years from the joining date falls after 31 July 2014 in which case the licence will only be for two years (or one year, as appropriate).
Institutions may participate in the Agreement at any time during its life, but shall be bound by its Terms and Conditions, including payments, until the end of the three-year commitment period. It should be noted, however, that no licence will be granted which would extend beyond 31 July 2014.
