ACCC handles the management and administration of cell phone and mobile data plans centrally contracted through the state of Illinois.
ACCC maintains a current listing of offerings from our providers, while also allowing requests for those devices to be routed through an online portal. Our portal then handles authentication, and approval before sending the requests on to the provider for order fulfillment. Devices are sent back to us, the accounts are registered in our telecommunications management billing system and the users is contacted to pick up the device.
The new ACCC policy on Cell Phones and Related services that will be effective on January 1, 2016, requires changes to the related services previously provided by OBFS. If after reviewing this material you still have any questions, please contact us by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All University employees or units will be able to order institutionally provided cell phones and related services, upon prior approval from Dean, Vice Chancellor or Associate Vice President.
All Stipends will continue to be submitted to OBFS.
NOTE: The University is required to purchase all cellular service using the State of Illinois contract negotiated by Central Management Systems (CMS).
