DCS & DCA Rates
"DCS and DCA will provide the best value to the State in every service we offer and to every customer we serve."
While market conditions have led to significant price fluctuation for fuel, vehicles, energy, and other materials and goods over the last several fiscal years, DCS and DCA are still able to offer most of its services at the lowest possible cost to state agencies. DCS sets its rates to recover all costs without profit while remaining competitive with the private sector. DCS and DCA keep rates competitive by conducting a bi-annual rate comparison study; planning with key customers to manage volumes to create economies of scale; pursuing alternative funding strategies, including grants; and maintaining a constant focus on productivity improvement and process efficiency.
