Assurance Fee Schedule

Fees for the Assurance Program follow the same tiers as the InCommon participant fee schedule. The Assurance fee table includes a graduated ramp-up from 2012 through 2015, acknowledging the value added by early adopters who will help create the program, improve processes, and create documentation for others to use.

These fees apply only to Identity Provider Operators wishing to be certified at the Silver level and above. There is no charge for Bronze.

Fees have been approved by the InCommon Steering Committee and are subject to change.


The Assurance Program is open to Identity Provider Operators from these types of organizations:

  • Higher Education
  • Research Organizations
  • Not-for-profit Sponsored Partners (except those that offer consumer-oriented identity services)

Please email if you have questions or need help determining eligibility.
