Dear Bidder

You recently registered against this PIN notice and a number of Organisations responded to our questionnaire. If you responded to that questionnaire we would be grateful if you could email Mark Salveta a response to this question

The Community Systems Market Sounding Exercise issued in August 2017, asked pricing information based on 4000 users. Can we clarify if a discounted price model would be available for larger volumes of users and what this would represent?
