Enterprise Subscription Pricing
The annual price of the Internet2 NET+ DocuSign for Higher Education enterprise service is based on the size of the institution grouped into one of 7 pricing tiers.
“Total Staff” means all staff and faculty, including full and part time, instructional and non-instructional.
“Total Students” means total FTE enrollment.
“Total Population” means Total Staff + Total students. Total Population will be determined using the most recent final release iPeds data available at the time of licensing (provisional release data may be used if it impacts the pricing tier).
Tier determination will be made based on the Total Population for all entities being licensed.
Tier re-evaluation will be done upon renewal. For example, if a university signs a 3 year term, the tier will not be re-evaluated until year 4.
|Tier 1||Tier2||Tier3||Tier 4||Tier 5||Tier 6||Tier 7|
|Envelope Benchmark (for measurement purposes)||25,000||40,000||60,000||90,000||125,000||175,000||250,000|
*If aggregate population of an institution/system is greater than 100,000, DocuSign reserves the right to negotiate different pricing with such entity.
Flex Plan Subscription Options
A flexible pricing plan (“Flex Plan”) is available to Participants who have smaller depoyments. Flex Plan pricing includes 40% or more off the prices listed in Service Provider’s then-current price list, depending on volume.
Service Provider will lead quoting for Flex Plan deployments for each Participant individually. Quotes will include a base 40% discount off Service Provider’s then-current list price for appropriate products as well as additional earned volume discounts on a case-by-case basis.
Flex Plans can be purchased in any increment of 500 envelopes with a minimum subscription of 2,500 envelopes annually.
Discount for Other DocuSign Software
Product add-ons and other DocuSign software that is not described in the Participation Agreement will be discounted at 40% or more off Service Provider’s then-current price list, depending on volume.
For unlimited integration with Salesforce, add an additional 10% to the enterprise pricing listed herein.
Limited integration with Salesforce is available at 5% off Service Provider's then-current Salesforce price.
DocuSign does not charge for integrations with services provided by Box or Hyland. However, DocuSign cannot control whether or not a third party or partner charges a fee for access to a connector on their end, especially if such third party or partner built and maintains the connector (for example, Hyland typically charges a one-time fee to access the connector on their end). With an exception for Salesforce, DocuSign does not charge a fee on its end for access to connectors. Note that most scenarios will require a subscription for both products (i.e., Participant would need DocuSign licenses and Intelledox licenses in order to use the DocuSign/Intelledox connector).
Startup and Implementation Costs
All new full deployment and Flex Plan customers are required to purchase a mandatory professional services support pack as listed below.
Service Provider will scope and recommend whether the 50 hour or 100 hour professional services support pack is necessary based upon the complexity of the deployment at the time of purchase, and Service Provider will subsequently provide a Statement of Work (SOW) to Participant.
For each professional services support pack, hours are billed monthly in arrears only for time consumed, not to exceed the hourly total on the SOW. Unused hours will not be billed.
Optional Professional Services may be purchased in addition to the required Professional Services listed above.
