The Cost Analysis document has two purposes. First, it develops a high level cost estimate of the expenditures that are associated with implementing ITS components. Second, it is a costing tool for implementers, by providing unit prices and systems costs of ITS subsystems. There is significant correlation between the Cost Analysis and the Evaluatory Design documents; the cost analysis is based largely on the assumptions made for the three deployment scenarios (urban, interurban, and rural).
