These revisions, which represent an effort by senior management to streamline processes and better define business needs surrounding mobile communication devices, and to save money through consolidation, create significant changes to the manner in which mobile devices (such as cellphones) are provided to faculty and staff members at the Ithaca campus. The key changes of the policy revision include (1) raising the level of approval for issuance of a university device, (2) removal of job-related allowances (JRAs), (3) limiting choices for mobile devices, and (4) eliminating all home Internet reimbursements. For information about the mobile device provision process, please see the Cornell Cellular Account Guidelines and Request Form. For information about devices and cellular service providers, please visit the Cellphones and Telecom Equipment pages on the Procurement Services website.
Please familiarize yourself with these policy changes and direct questions to your supervisor or to Procurement Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
