1) A description of the software service that you have taken from Matrix SCM.
2)The Crown Commercial Service GCloud9 16 digit Service ID for all the services taken.
3) The search words used to select the offering from Matrix SCM (please see the GC9 procurement regulations for info). Which other organisations (and service IDs) appeared as a result of your search and the MEAT criteria used to down select to Matrix SCM.

You will be aware of the rules and regulations of compliant GCloud9 purchases that the pricing must be calculated by the buyer using the information supplied through the portal and that no negotiation can be entertained.

1) Confirm that no additional discounts were applied to the order outside of the discounts listed within the Service Definition or associated Pricing Files.
2) Confirm how Northamptonshire CC arrived at the 3x 12.5k costs.
