About Annual Fees

Annual fees include the registration of one identity management system and up to fifty (50) service provider entities. A participant may only register a system over which it has management control. Third-party systems are not permitted as outlined in the participation agreement [WORD] [PDF]. The base annual package allows for one IdP and up to 50 Service Provider IDs, which are registered individually as needed. With the registration of the 51st SP, InCommon will issue an invoice for another package of 50 as part of the next year's annual fee.

Annual fees are prorated for your first year of participation, based on the quarter in which your organization joins the federation (full fee if you join in the first quarter; 25 percent reduction for second quarter; 50 percent reduction for third quarter; 75 percent reduction for fourth quarter). After this first year, annual fees for all participants are not prorated and are due on January 1.

Adding an Identity Provider or Service Providers

Adding an additional identity provider, or another 50 service providers, is $1,000.
