How do the costs of the agreement relate to previous subscription-only agreements with the publisher?

Transformative agreements vary by their transformative mechanisms, meaning the way in which financing is shifted from the subscription side to open access publishing. What are the characteristics of this agreement to this regard?
|Subscriptions partly converted to OA publishing fees|
How do entitlements for open access publishing correlate to the anticipated article output? Which mechanisms for risk sharing have been agreed in cases of exceeding or not reaching the number of OA publishing entitlements?
|This is our institution’s highest risk read and publish agreement and most likely to result in us needing to add funding to support the full extent of publishing|
Are all journals relevant to your affiliated authors (in which you expect them to publish) eligible for OA publishing under the agreement?
|Are fully open access journals covered by the agreement?||Yes|
|OA LICENSE||CC-BY variations allowed|
||Original research articles
What is the approximate share of access related costs of the overall agreement?
Are all read relevant journals covered by the agreement?
|PERPETUAL ACCESS RIGHTS||Yes|
|Comments on workflows||Their system for APC processing is adequate and works well with our workflows|
|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS||This is our highest risk agreement but was the one most requested by our faculty. Some faculty have balked at publishing open access with this provider and so we’ve had to back out of a couple of APC costs. We are monitoring this agreement closely to determine continuation.|
