What are the costs?

OpenCRVS is a free open-source software and available as a Digital Public Good, meaning there are no licence fees to pay. However, there are a number of other costs that need to be considered when evaluating the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a digital CRVS system. This includes the upfront costs to develop and rollout the system at a National scale, but also the long term costs that will be incurred year-on-year to operate and maintain the system.
