EPAS has been operating for several years soley on the support of our administration team - a few college students and recent grads working in their spare time to turn EPAS from a clunky Windows-only application to a modern, cross-platform web application. We have never charged anything for departments to use EPAS and we hope to continue that. We do not have "investors" who are providing funds. It all comes from us. Our annual costs are around $730, not to mention hours of work that go into the continued operation of EPAS. If you or your department like EPAS, please consider donating any amount to help EPAS continue to run.
