Campus Wireless Equipment Policy


Wireless services are required by various employees in order to facilitate the needs of campus departments to fulfill the University's goals for excellence in education, healthcare and research.  The Procurement Office has instituted the following campus policy for the establishment and payment of wireless services and equipment funded by the State and Research Foundation.

Wireless equipment and services should be purchased  with the approval of campus departmental administrators (i.e. Deans, Chairs, Directors, et al) who, in turn, are responsible for ensuring and verifying that their employees are using the wireless services exclusively for business purposesPersonal use of University wireless equipment and services is strictly prohibited.

There have been some recent equipment and policy changes.  As part of the University's cost containment initiative, Mobile Phone Management is currently in the process of migrating to SBUH protocols and these are the only devices that will be supported using our State contracts going forward.  A more formal announcement by Senior Leadership is forthcoming.  Below are the currently available devices.  Please fill out and return the order form below the line with my information so I can forward your request to Verizon.  Please also be sure to include your cost center or PO# on the Cost Center line to avoid any delays in processing.

Reimbursement of wireless service fees under personal accounts are not allowed. The Procurement Office will assist employees in establishing a business account that will be separate from the employee's personal account.

All mobile devices purchased with State or Research Foundation funds are the property of the University.

1. Under no circumstance should employees of Stony Brook University, using Research Foundation or State funds, purchase telephone equipment, supplies or services at a local cellular service provider store or service center.

2. Campus departments are required to contact Fran Gandia (2-9094) or Margaret Remiszewski (2-9836) prior to submitting a purchase requisition for the purchase of wireless equipment and upgrades.
