OneSpan Sign is Ohio’s enterprise solution for eSignatures. The product is a FedRAMP SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, which offers a standardized approach to cloud security (https://www.fedramp.gov/faqs/).
For state entities that are interested in implementing eSignature into their business processes, there are two types of costs associated with the service. They are as follows:
Per Transaction Fee: The service is priced at $1.06 per transaction. One transaction can include multiple documents, multiple signatures, and multiple people in a workflow. There are no additional costs to use add-on features such as multifactor authentication.
Interval Deliverable Agreement (IDA) Cost: This represents the costs associated with engaging OneSpan Sign professional services to integrate the eSignature solution with agency applications (e.g., API development). However, please note that integrations can also be built using internal agency resources or staff augmentation, without engaging OneSpan Sign professional services.

The state has negotiated pricing with the manufacturers for maintenance of HP and Cisco devices. Maintenance agreements with Cisco and HP provide significant volume discounts by aggregating all state agency purchases. Highlights of the contracts are given below.
At this time, discounts under these agreements are available only to state of Ohio agencies.
Cisco Enterprise Maintenance Agreement. The Cisco Enterprise Agreement offers Ohio agencies a minimum discount of 30 percent. Cisco also guarantees that it will not raise the price of SmartNet maintenance for the second and third year of the period, FY 17-19. Items may be added and deleted throughout the period, with deleted items receiving credits during the annual true-up process. Agencies receive MBE set-aside credit for purchases under this agreement.
HP Enterprise Maintenance Contract. The basic master maintenance agreement (MMA) between Ohio and HP Direct, MMA #7145, affords a discount of 17 percent, along with a pre-payment discount of 4 percent. Under the new Enterprise Maintenance Contract, HP looks at all of Ohio's agencies as one "site" and offers additional discounts of up to 18 percent. These discounts are based on a sliding scale and provide a potential total discount on HP maintenance of up to 39 percent to all state of Ohio agencies. Discounts are reviewed annually.
As an agency's existing maintenance plan expires, the agency can be rolled onto the MMA. To participate in this initiative, send a list of the items to be quoted for maintenance to the HP contact below and copy DAS.State.IT.Standards.Manager@das.ohio.gov. Be sure to note that the amount should be quoted under MMA #7145.
