New cellular device policies

Recently, the Washington State Office of Financial Management (OFM) updated their policies regarding employee cellular device allowances and hardware. WSU has updated BPPM 85.45 and 55.70 in order to comply with the new OFM guidelines, and have created new cell phone allowance agreements in Workday. These updates will impact employees who currently receive cell phone allowance or hardware.

If you receive a cell phone allowance and are impacted by this change, you will be contacted by your department administrative personnel with more information, and to complete next steps.
