How do I make an Institutional Purchase of an Adobe Product?

Adobe License Types: Perpetual and Subscription

Perpetual: For some Adobe products - including Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe Captivate, Adobe ColdFusion family, and Adobe Photoshop Elements - we can still purchase perpetual products from Adobe. 

Subscription: For other Adobe products - Adobe Stock and Adobe Creative Cloud (including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro) - Adobe no longer offers perpetual license support and has moved to a subscription-based licensing model.

For Adobe Creative Cloud, DoIT now manages the purchase of named user licenses for faculty and staff, which allows users to get better prices, currently $161.25 per year. 

Making a Purchase

When you want to purchase an Adobe product, start by determining which product you want to purchase.

  1. For Adobe Creative Cloud, see purchasing Adobe Creative Cloud as an Adobe Named User License 

  2. For other Adobe products

    1. If you’re not sure which purchase option(s) (perpetual vs subscription) is available for the Adobe product you’re interested in, contact a current Adobe vendor to learn options (see current vendors below).

    2. For subscription purchases, have your VIP number ready. Contact your department IT support person for more information on VIP numbers.

    3. For perpetual purchases, have this CLP number ready: CLP# 4400871814 (the CLP number allows you to get the best price*)

    4. Request a quote:

      1. If the order is $2,499 or less, request at least one quote from current Adobe vendors (see current vendors below), and then complete the service request form in Wolfmart selecting the NY State IT Umbrella Contract. Then the purchase order will be processed.

      2. If the order is $2,500 or more, request at least one quote from current Adobe vendors and then complete the service request form in Wolfmart. These orders need to be processed following NYS IT Umbrella distributor based contract requirements: A formal RFQ (Request for Quotation) will be send to all authorized Adobe resellers for quotes (the purchase procedure will take longer because of the RFQ process). Contact Procurement (2-6010) if you have any questions.
