 What is Total Vest Cost?

Simple Answer:
  • Total cost includes the cost of the vest, accessories, shipping, handling, fitting charges, and applicable taxes.

    More Detailed Answer:
  • The program is designed to pay up to 50% of the total cost of each vest in the application. Total cost includes the cost of the vest, vest carriers, attachments, inserts, and covers considered integral or essential for its proper care, use, and wearability, shipping, handling, fitting charges, and applicable taxes. Essentially, the total invoiced price, after all vendor and prompt payment discounts have been deducted, is normally what BJA uses to determine total cost. Information about the invoiced purchase price and related costs will be reported to BJA when payment is requested.
