Institutions can stretch the budget on purchases of popular software packages. MHEC has entered into agreements with these vendors to provide special pricing, terms, and end user license agreements for use in education. Because of the special nature of some software packages or the fact that an institution currently uses the software; sole source buying may be acceptable. In any event, institutions should be able to use these contracts at renewal time. In some cases, personal use licenses are available.
