FTE Cost Models for Systemwide Investment

Systemwide co-investment involves sharing the cost of a digital resource across participating campuses. CDL has employed many cost models in the past, including hybrid and custom models which allowed more campuses to have access by contributing at a differential, agreed-upon rate that took into account the budget, demonstrated need or ability to contribute.

In 2017, the UC Libraries decided to implement an FTE-based cost model as the preferred method of sharing costs across the campuses. The FTE cost model is used as often as appropriate, although exceptions include when vendor tiered pricing or equal shares ensure that no campus pays more than the vendor's single site pricing.
