How do departments place orders for Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP)?

Cavalier Computers enrolls department in Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP). Adobe emails departmental contact for confirmation of participation.
Adobe emails both the department and Cavalier Computers a Welcome to Adobe Value Incentive Program (VIP) message and provides VIP number. The VIP number is 20 character alpha-numeric “order number” and replaces the “Deploy to ID” that is utilized in Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP) order fulfillment.
The department may use the Adobe Admin Console to add named user licenses or ask Cavalier Computers for a quote or order of licenses. Device licenses may not be ordered via the Adobe Admin Console, at this time, and must be ordered from Cavalier Computers.
Named user licenses added by the department are available for immediate use. Device license orders take approximately 3 to 5 business days for fulfillment, as an email sent directly to the departmental contact.
Can departments add licenses to existing Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) number?
Yes, but note that subscription terms are one year, so Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) licenses added afterward will be pro-rated in price and be up for renewal at the same time as the original subscription.
Departments may opt to keep Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) purchases separate rather than joined to existing deployments. A new Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) enrollment and number must be created for all orders that will in effect be “new” orders.
