Mobile Technology Allowances

Last update: 04/21/2017 - 11:40am


Subject to UO policy, employees may be eligible for a monthly allowance for mobile technology expenses required to carry out their jobs. “Mobile technology” refers to cellular phones, tablets, smart phones, personal digital assistants, and similar devices.

In CAS, Tier 1 and Tier 2 mobile technology allowances require both department head or program director approval, if unit resources allow, and the Dean’s approval. CAS does not normally authorize allowances above Tier 2.



To request a mobile technology allowance, employees should use the MTAPOR form, available on the BAO "Mobile Technology Payment Procedures" page. Enter the department head/program director as the department-level approval, and Sherri Nelson (sherrin) as the Dean-level approval. 


The unit is responsible for ensuring the payment is made each month. See the process options on the Business Affairs “Mobile Technology Payment Procedures” page.

Annual Renewal 

Employees must renew their mobile technology allowances annually, by submitting a new request form for review.
