have you considered there may be a kick-back from the specified travel agent to the “not for profit”?…

I had similar experiences when working for a US university when the specified agent quoted much higher prices than I could find myself for the same flights…

when this type of exclusive arrangement is made, the agent seems to take the view the the “not for profit” or in my case the university will assume the agent is treating them correctly…

hence will not bother, just pay up accepting the small discount on the excessive fare without question !
