Operational Fees

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

The costs of providing assurance through the Framework are met by providers through Operational Fees.  

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

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

Only one assurance charge will apply (that being the application with the highest level of assurance) if a vehicle is enrolled in more than one application of the National Telematics Framework.

Monthly, per vehicle charges for each level of assurance (excl GST)
