GCP - Google Cloud Platform Pricing

GCP - Pricing

A final pricing model for GCP is currently under development.  Data is being collected with regard to UW usage, and the actual costs to campus over the next fiscal year. As a result, a surcharge may be applied in the future.
The current net cost to campus customers will be roughly equivalent to Google's GCP rates.


Customers are responsible for ensuring that any grant funds used to pay for GCP is done in accordance with RSP (https://rsp.wisc.edu) policy and federal requirements (2 CFR 200 Subpart E). Basic guidance can be found at https://www.rsp.wisc.edu/awardmgt/explanation_costs.html. It is recommended that all customers who wish to use a grant to pay for GCP contact RSP for guidance.  The campus Research Computing Initiative can also respond to questions about how to effectively use Public Cloud offerings for conducting or preparing for research.

If you have any questions, please contact us at cloud-services@cio.wisc.edu.
