How much does GETS cost?

The only charge is for usage when making calls using a GETS card. GETS calls are billed at a rate of 7 cents or 10 cents per minute (depending on carrier and other factors) for calls within the United States and its territories, Canada, and most of the Caribbean. International calls are billed at commercial rates, though international calling privileges are restricted to those cards so authorized by your organization's Point of Contact (POC) or alternate.

Federal government organizations are exempt from billing until an annual  threshold for GETS calls has been exceeded. However, the NCS reserves the right to bill federal users for GETS calls if there has been fraud, waste, or abuse using your GETS card.

For organizations outside the federal government, a Program Designator Code (PDC) is required to establish a billing account for payment of GETS calls placed by members of your organization. GETS charges are payable to our contracting office, the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO). Details on paying these charges would be included with the bill you receive from them. NOTE: You will not normally be billed for calls to confirm receipt of individual GETS cards, familiarization calls, or short-duration test calls to the familiarization line (703-818-3924). However, we reserve the right to bill for all calls, especially if there has been fraud, waste, or abuse using your GETS card(s).
