Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible?
All UFV permanent and temporary Faculty and Staff (excluding Auxiliary I & II employees) are eligible to participate in the plan once every three years as per Canada Revenue Guidelines.
What does the plan cover?
The plan is intended to assist as many employees as possible to acquire a personal home computer; therefore, the plan will only cover the cost of:
- a new computer system; desktop computer, laptop or tablet
- accompanying peripheral device: keyboard, mouse
- the cost of upgrading an existing home system: memory, hard-drives, monitors, printers, and scanners.
The plan covers the cost of a computer system to a limit of $2,000 including PST & GST. If the system you choose is more than $2,000, a cheque for the difference must accompany your purchasing paperwork (purchase requisition and payroll deduction authorization form). Employees also have the option of applying their Training and Development fund to cover a portion of the cost of the purchase. Please visit Training and Development Allowance for more information.
*This plan does not cover software (e.g. Microsoft Office, Antivirus Software). Software purchases may be applied for separately through In-Service Professional Development.
