Mobile Device Usage Policy

Please read the Mobile Device Usage Policy:

The University recognises that mobile devices cover a variety of technology devices that are evolving rapidly. Mobile telephones, PDAs, netbooks, slates / tablets and smartphones are all examples of mobile devices that can enable productivity and flexibility in the work place and on the move. This document provides managers and budget holders with a consistent approach to evaluating requests for University-supplied mobile devices. The procurement of a mobile device with University funds is subject to existing purchasing arrangements and framework deals for mobile voice (currently Vodafone) and mobile IT (currently Dell, HP and Apple).

Due to the continuing convergence and development of mobile devices this policy will be reviewed at least annually. A worker with mobile requirements over and above a standard office desktop computer may require one mobile telephone (standard or non-standard), and one mobile computer and these devices would normally be replaced no sooner than two years after initial purchase.
