Effective July 1, 2017, wireless phone invoices are being centrally paid by OP Telecommunications, which is in the process of consolidating all accounts into one master account with each vendor. UCOP’s Budget & Finance department, in collaboration with BRC, will be reviewing fiscal year 2016-17 wireless phone expenses to determine the FY 2017-18 budget amount to be redirected to the central fund.

What is a BRC Blast? The first week of each month the Business Resource Center (BRC) publishes a guide with tips, tricks and helpful information. Previous Blasts have covered such topics as how to set up an annual purchase order for recurring charges or how to expedite your travel reimbursements. Click Blast Archives to access Blasts from the past, which are available for easy reference in pdf form on our BRC website.
If you’d like to be added to the BRC listserv, send an email request to BRCPolicyCompliance@ucop.edu.
You may continue to receive Verizon and AT&T invoices for the next month as the consolidation of accounts is completed. Please continue to submit all invoices to the BRC for payment. We will be paying these invoices from the central account.
