Distribution Management Systems

Dear List,
I'm currently looking deeply into the concept of electric power distribution management systems. Theoretically, I'm fine, I'm aware of the additional functionality benefits that are added by introducing DMS into electric utilities. Practically I wander down to which voltage level does the control and monitoring of the electrical network reach. In other words, does these systems do the control down to the 11kV / 220 V substations; If so, does anyone have a figure of how much such a system would cost (roughly speaking) if it would control up to 1000 11kV/220V substation (here we are talking of adding a 1000 RTU???).

Thanks in advance.
