Blackberry Information
NIH Blackberry Acquistion Procedures

Please view the following NIH procedures for Blackberry acquisition:

  1. Justification for Acquisition. NIH needs to ensure that PDAs procured for use by staff are justified, technically effective, and managed appropriately. ICs shall ensure that procurement of a PDA device supports the employee's responsibilities and related productivity and responsiveness requirements.

  2. Required Approvals. The IC EO must approve the acquisition of all new or replacement PDAs and related service contracts for staff in their respective IC. The IC EO and NIH Chief Information Officer (CIO) must approve all exceptions to procuring the HHS-standard PDA device. Exception requests must include documentation that supports the reason that a Blackberry device cannot meet the staff's needs. Program staff members are strongly encouraged to consult with their local IT support staff to ensure that the right device is acquired from the right source.

  3. Acquisition Procedures. ICs that order a PDA or replace an existing PDA must comply with the NIH Policy and Procedures for Acquiring and Managing Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) (NIH only). ICs shall follow their normal procurement ordering processes after receiving approval(s).
