Written answers (Question to Finance)

My Department uses Lotus Notes for a small number of legacy systems for which perpetual licenses were purchased prior to 2009.  Accordingly, the Lotus Notes licenses held by my Department have not been renewed in the period 2009 to date.  Therefore no expenditure on licences has been incurred during this time, nor are there currently any plans to do so.
