3. Termination of Agreements

Nag Compilers and Libraries

This license agreement comes to the end of its current 5-year term on 31st July 2005. It was originally taken out to support the use of Nag libraries and compliers on mainframe systems at OUCS, who also funded a support programmer. Use of the license was extended to individual departments and colleges at no additional cost. A usage survey was carried out in February 2005 with all registered IT support staff and current Nag flexlm licence holders invited to comment.

Three departments noted a requirement for the continued use of certain Nag libraries, this number was not sufficient to gain cost savings by the departments sharing a site licence.

One department has taken out a four library departmental licence to date.
