                    OBJECTIVES

Why are we doing this?
 self-sufficiency
 phasing in these fees over the next three fiscal years
  will eliminate the need for central funding
 consistency to customers
 provides structure to the Job Scheduling Service Team
  as well as to our customers

             FEE STRUCTURE (proposal)

   Base Fee
   License Fee
   Operating Fee

                       BASE FEE

Included in the Base Fee are such tasks as the following
and CAS time will be tracked in CBS, then charged to the
customer’s cost center.

 Loading of the TWS client
 Training
 Set up of jobs, job streams, and calendars
 Set up support
 Documentation


The cost to customers will be variable in the number of
hours of support provided by CAS. An hourly fee, based
upon the CAS Labor Rate, will be used to calculate the
Base Fee for each customer.


                                                           5
                           BASE FEE
                               Examples:
1) A new customer wants set up for 325 jobs, 26 job streams and 17
calendar events. Client software is not needed, but set up and training for
TWS WebAdmin is requested. This customer has also asked for VISIO
charts of all jobs, job streams and calendar events be provided to them
by CAS.

2) An existing customer is adding 43 jobs, 3 new job streams, changes to
8 existing job streams, and changes to 4 calendar events. No training or
VISIO charts are requested.
In both examples, the actual time that CAS works on these requests are
logged to a CBS Project and Task. The total hours spent in a fiscal year is
multiplied by the CAS Labor Rate of $. This is the Base Fee assessed to
the customer.
It should be noted that time spent in one fiscal year is not assessed until
the next fiscal year – for accuracy of the time and charges.


                                                                              6
                  LICENSE FEE

Customers will be charged for the cost of each TWS site
and/or application license(s) on servers they own.




                                                          7
                        OPERATING FEE
Customers will be charged a fee based upon the number of jobs run in
TWS PROD. Included in this fee are:

 jobs stored in the database
 regularly scheduled backups of the database
 jobs run in TWS
 low-end maintenance
 server hardware costs
 server hosting fees
 24x7 support


The Operating Fee will be based on the number of jobs run in PROD,
but will also include any or all of the above items for TEST.

A pre-determined dollar figure will be established by CAS for the
“per-job” rate, which will initially be based upon current charges and
number of jobs run. Reports will be run by CAS on a semi-annual basis
to maintain accuracy when determining the new yearly cost for each
customer.

                                                                         8
                  OPERATING FEE

                            Example:

Based on the semi-annual reports run by CAS, the total number of
jobs run in production during a fiscal year will be determined for
each customer. The total number of jobs will then be multiplied
by a fixed fee of $ to determine the cost to the customer.

Total number of jobs run in PROD multiplied by the fixed fee
equals the Operating Fee.

It should be noted that the total number of jobs run in a fiscal
year is not determined nor are fees assessed until the next fiscal
year – for accuracy.



                                                                 9
                 FEE STRUCTURE

Base Fee + License Fee + Operating Fee = Total Fee


Base Fee = number of hours for setup (variable)
License Fee = number of licenses (variable)
Operating Fee = number of jobs run in TWS PROD per year
               (variable by the number of jobs)
               (constant by the per job cost)




                                                      10
                      SUMMARY

   Fee structure is kept simple and straight forward
   Fees are consistent for all customers
   No hidden fees to the customer
   Fee structures are presented to each customer
