IWU Wireless/Connectivity Transition Plan
Any employee who has been issued a University owned cellular device may assume ownership
over the issued device once the University discontinues the plan. If an employee assumes
ownership of the device, the cash value of the device will be considered income and
subject to tax. Ownership of a University device does not guarantee the employee will
be eligible for the Wireless/Connectivity Device Allowance (“allowance”). Eligibility
for the allowance is covered by the Wireless/Connectivity Allowance Policy.
The Telecommunications Department will contact the employee 30 days prior to the termination
of the University’s financial responsibility of the wireless plan.
Failure to transition to a personal plan within 30 days will result in service being
discontinued to the device and the loss of the phone number.
Within the 30 days the employee will need to do the following:
Review the Wireless/Connectivity Allowance Policy with their supervisor to determine
their eligibility for the allowance.
Obtain a personal plan and assume all financial responsibility for the device.
If eligible for the allowance, complete the
Wireless/Connectivity Device Allowance Request form
and return it to the Payroll Office.
