The department may provide a technology reimbursement to the employee through payroll for the use of a personal wireless device(s). The technology reimbursement can be a cost effective option, requiring minimal administrative effort.

The department should document the business need and should consider the following:

  • The ongoing business need of the department to pay for or provide one or more wireless devices is in the best interest of the University.

Reasons include:

  • The employee’s job responsibilities require considerable time out of the office for meetings or travel.  
  • The employee’s job responsibilities require the employee be accessible outside of normal working hours. 
  • The wireless device contributes to the effective and efficient conduct of University business.
