The Cost Model for Digital Preservation is a tool that calculates the present and future costs of Ingest, Archival Storage, Administration, and Preservation Planning activities from the Open Archival Information System Reference Model.

The Keeping Research Data Safe (KRDS) Benefits Analysis Toolkit guides users through a process of identifying, assessing, and communicating the benefits from investing resources in the curation and long-term preservation of research data.

The Storage and Archive Management (SAM) suite is comprised of three browser-based tools which aid in planning for audio-visual digitisation projects.
