Headsets can be valuable aids for employees who use the phone system frequently in their work. However, given the cost of these devices, OIT will only fund the purchase of headsets when they are necessary for the employee to effectively carry out their responsibilities. Below is the current policy followed by OIT for headset replacement/procurement.
Purchase of new headsets
Any user that feels they need a headset can contact OIT (Faculty/Staff Support Desk x4090) and OIT will provide one as long as one of the following conditions are met:
- Supervisor of employee confirms that a headset is necessary for the employee’s job
- The existing headset doesn’t function properly
Replacement headsets will be the Jabra Pro 9450 Mono Flex Wireless headset.
A department wishing to purchase a headset for an employee who does not currently have a headset should work with OIT to order the device.
