Mobile Device Management

OMES is transitioning to a new Mobile Device Management platform in order to make managing Apple devices simpler and to ensure the safety and security of state data. As part of this transition, we will be able to improve the management of devices including ability to restore access when locked out, management of licenses and apps, data and more – all from one place.

Standards and ordering information

OMES is pleased to offer Apple iPhone as the state standard for mobile devices. State agencies may acquire services, iPhone equipment and accessories directly from approved vendors on statewide contract knowing they will work in our technology environment, meet state architecture and security requirements and be supportable by OMES complying with the IT Consolidation and Coordination Act. Note: iPhone X model and above currently meet state standards.

Ordering Portals

FirstNet deploys, operates, maintains and improves the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety. For more information, visit the FirstNet website.

Statewide Contract Information

To order a mobile phone and data service plan, you must have an account set up. Visit this page to view statewide contracts with national vendors, contact details and ordering information.

Apple IDs are not needed or recommended with Intune-joined iPhones. OMES does not prevent users from using Apple IDs. However, please make sure you log out of your Apple ID once you have finished your action.
