ETS is funded by a rate methodology for usage based technology service and an assessment methodology for fixed costs related to managing the states core infrastructure and services.

Usage based rates are derived from projected usage and cost for each service. Please note that these estimates are based on the best information available at the time of publication of the Price List.

The assessment provides for the statewide fixed investment costs required to manage the core infrastructure supporting the running of state government. This includes the State Network Access Charge (SNAC) for bandwidth and administrative overhead. For further detail, please reference the Rate Methodology document (listed below).

Estimates do not include new activities initiated by agencies. Certain ETS customer agencies developing information technology-related Policy Option Packages should contact the ETS to develop project cost estimates and to determine the impact on the ETS. As a general rule of thumb for planning purposes, ETS costs will be 30% of total project costs.​
