Operational Fees

The National Telematics Framework supports applications with different levels of assurance.

The costs of providing assurance through the Framework are met by Application Service Providers (ASPs) through Operational Fees.  

Operational Fees are applied by TCA on a monthly basis according to:

  • The number of vehicles monitored by each ASP through one or more applications of the National Telematics Framework
  • The level of assurance provided by TCA for each application.

Where an individual vehicle is enrolled in multiple applications with different levels of assurance with the same ASP, only one Operational Fee will be applied by TCA (the application with the highest level of assurance).
