We've used an outsource company, www.e-academy.com, to allow students to
purchase Microsoft and Adobe products at a substantial discount based on
our existing contracts. Once we setup the process the institution is
basically out of the loop and doesn't have to get involved unless an
issue comes up (which doesn't happen very often).
It's been working very well for us for several years. If you need any
specific info let me know and we can talk offline.
