Default Cost to run/maintain/use a GAII?

So my lab just inherited a GAII. It's ours free and clear from a lab that is moving and I believe is also upgrading to a HiSeq.

What I would like to get is a rough estimate on how much we should expect it to cost to run and maintain one both in terms of $$ for consumables and maintenance and in time and effort? Do we need a dedicated technician? It would not be used as a core facility - it would be just for our use. Is it a waste of our resources just as it would probably be to do our own Sanger sequencing to verify cloning etc.?

We would use it routinely for sure and I'd be in charge of it.
