Rates & Hosting Fees

Hourly Rate

ITS Custom Applications and Consulting Services (CACS) delivers professional end-to-end technology solutions. The current hourly rate for CACS services is $120/hour. CACS provides hours estimates and proposals upon request.

Application support and hosting fees for all CACS developed applications are governed by a service level agreement.  At the beginning of the fiscal year the sponsor, functional lead and reconciler will receive an email identifying the customer contacts and billing PTAO for the annual hosting fee and work performed under the SLA.  Work performed under the SLA is billable at the standard rate of 120 dollars an hour.

Hosting Fees

CACS utilizes ITS hosted and cloud based servers as determined by your application needs. Cloud hosting gives customers powerful, scalable, and reliable performance based on clustered load-balanced servers. A cloud hosted website may be more reliable than alternatives since other computers in the cloud can compensate when a single piece of hardware goes down.

Hosting fees are billed monthly to the PTAO on file. For websites / content management, the hosting fee includes upgrades to the operating system, application patching, security updates and backups. For Custom Application the hosting fee covers upgrades to the operating system and backups. All changes for application patching, software upgrades and security related issues will be billed to the existing SLA at the standard rate.  Hosting fees are based on actual server costs.
