The fee was instituted by
HCN in October, 2001 (just after the CAUL's renewal last year). It
is calculated at 5% of the pre-GST total if the order involves a single
resource from a single supplier. If the order involves multiple resources
from multiple suppliers, it is then calculated at 10% of the pre-GST total.
This means that for the CAUL Cochrane renewal, the HCN services fee is
$48.74 AUD per/Uni. (5% of pre-GST total of $18,521.44 AUD = $926.07 AUD/19
Uni.'s = $48.74/Uni. Please note that the fee is mandatory an all
HCN Knowledge Resources orders.

Proposed CAUL pricing
Under this the text is as follows: Consortia pricing arrangements for the Cochrane Library will depend on the number of interested Universities that wish to purchase. However, the following estimations have been made as a general indication of cost. All prices are in AUD and are per annum subscriptions. Please be sure to distribute information on the Cochrane Library to all Medical, Health, Nursing, and Allied Health Librarians within the University.
Note that usually a one concurrent user Cochrane Subscription is $1250 AUD pa.
* If all Universities
wish to purchase:
Access to pool of 50 users @ cost of $550 to each site.
* If 30 Universities wish to purchase:
Access to pool of 30 users @ cost of $600 to each site.
* If 20 Universities wish to purchase:
Access to pool of 20 users @ cost of $650 to each site.
* If 10 Universities wish to purchase:
Access to pool of 10 users @ cost of $700 to each site.
Updated pricing 6 September
2000 (from Kim Hockey):
I have forwarded to you the final pricing information. This has been broken up into 1,2,3 and 4 simultaneous user options. The prices have been based on the following Universities expressing an interest.
ANU, QUT, Ballarat, UCan, UNE, UNewcastle, VUW and AUT.
I have spoken with the Uni of Canberra who already subscribe to Cochrane through HCN, so they would not need to 'buy in' until their renewal is due in November.
The prices below are ready
to be distributed, and all that I require to get started is:
Institution full name, contact name, billing address and all contact details.
Number of users required.
I will then contact each user personally to get their IP ranges to be set up etc.
A detailed invoice will then be sent to the CAUL office covering the purchase.
The pricing options are as follows:
1 simultaneous user:
$450 AUD pa total
2 simultaneous users: $780 AUD pa total
3 simultaneous users: $1050 AUD pa total
4 simultaneous users: $1300 AUD pa total
Please note that this is set up differently to what was originally proposed. Rather than sharing a pool of users with other Universities, the individual University will have their own number of licences just for themselves. Hence, each Uni will need to tell us how many users they want (up to 4 have been quoted above).
