This is a contract for the supply of software products.
"Les différentes fournitures sont réparties en 5 lots distincts... Lot 1.. Sous lot 1.1..." Batch doesnt sound right. Any suggestions?

Explanation:
I used to work in the contracts department of a computer hardware company and they often used the word "lot" on their billing statements to refer to a batch, if you will, of products being delivered.
