Supports public child welfare agencies in conducting a 5-year total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis. A TCO analysis is a comprehensive assessment and financial estimate of the expenses associated with purchasing, deploying, using, and retiring an information system. It can gauge the purchase price of a system as well as ongoing operational costs for a multi-year period. This calculator is part of the Total Cost of Ownership Guide and Calculator product and can be modified to fit the individual needs of a State or territory.
