How service is obtained


Institutional cellular information

Orders for phones for university business use must be placed by designated Department Cellular Representatives (DCRs) who serve as the primary contact with the cellular vendors. Departmental Cellular Representatives (DCRs) are the only people authorized to purchase cellular phones and services for university use through the university Master Contracts managed by DIT. Please contact your DCR to place all requests for service. Contact the IT Service Desk at 301.405.1500 if you have any questions concerning cell phone ordering procedures.
