All mobile device purchases require approval from your Division/Service Head (i.e. Vice-Chancellor, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Director of Human Resources, Director of Māori Development, Director of Planning and Funding and the Registrar and Secretary to Council).

Approval requests should be submitted via your line manager for escalation through the appropriate reporting lines.

Please ensure you have approval in writing from your Division/Service Head before you submit your purchase request, and attach a copy of that approval to the request.
