What is the estimated full cost to UC Berkeley to implement UCPath? Are there additional costs after the system implementation?

For UC Berkeley, the total estimated cost of the project (expected to be fully completed in FY 2020) is aligned with the originally reviewed and approved budget of $18.2 million. In addition, UCPath ongoing operational costs (UCPath Center Services, UCPath System Tech Support) are funded by all UCPath locations, including UC campuses.

The run-rate to operate UCPath, paid by UC Berkeley to the University of California Office of the President (UCOP), is $6.5 million per year. UCPath locations also pay variable project/debt service fees that depend on the year/stage in project implementation (debt service is for the $220.5M bond that began in FY 2016 and continues through FY 2036).
