Invoicing & sub-licence follow up / IGI Global perpetual purchase offer

29 May 2017

In follow up to the EPIC Update that I sent out on 17 May, I can confirm that all EPIC invoices and all EPIC sub-licence agreements for signing have been sent out.

The EPIC invoices were all sent out between Friday 19 May and Wednesday 24 May. If you are yet to receive your invoice and would like to follow up directly with our accounts receivable folk, the direct email to contact them is dia.ar@ird.govt.nz

I have now also emailed out all the sub-licence agreements for signing and would like to say a huge thank you to those of you that have already sent back your counter-signed copies. As I mentioned in the earlier update email, I have sent these to the EPIC contacts that I have on file for each of your organisations from my very own email address - paula.banks@dia.govt.nz.If you were expecting to receive one and you haven’t, please just email me and I will follow up.

Finally, I have a nice wee offer to pass on to any interested member libraries...
