When making decisions in e-resource management - for example subscribing to new content, purchasing an e-resource or a set or e-resources, cancelling content - it is often useful to compare an existing agreement to a new or potential agreement. Or to compare several different potential agreements to each other.
The reason for looking at this at the 'agreement' level in Folio (e.g. as opposed to at the level of specific packages) is that it allows for comparisons to be done on aspects other than just the content and content coverage - for example license terms & cost - as well as taking advantage of the ability of agreements to group together several packages or individual e-resources to make comparisons more comprehensive.
This Epic represents the requirement to be able to compare two or more agreements taking into consideration the content included and the related terms and cost
