Pager Service


Service Description

The Pager Service plan is intended to cover the state's normal requirements for paging service and equipment at attractive rates. Plans range from basic local area service to national coverage. Pager Services offer both numeric and alpha-numeric pagers in analog and digital paging formats. Executive branch agencies are required to use the Pager Service plan. The plan is also available for use by other governmental agencies.

The Pager Service plan provides paging service and equipment from two service providers. Both service providers include a number of standard and optional features in their respective plans. Commonly available features include:

  • Toll-free 800 number for paging when the user is outside of the service area
  • 3-tiered voice mail
  • Group paging
  • 2-way paging
  • Mobile email
  • Hosted message notification alerts
  • Weather alert
  • Loss protection

For detailed information on the paging contract see Paging Services and Equipment Contract.

Service Information

Pager Service is a pass through service made available to our customers by way of negotiated contracts with commercial service providers. The governing contracts for these types of services are negotiated to provide rates and terms favorable to the State. For this service, customers will interact directly with the vendor for the provisioning of the service and its ongoing support, meaning that we will not be able to commit to Service Level Agreements, such as provisioning or resolution times. Customers would also interact directly with the vendor to ensure the accuracy of user account data.

In addition to the direct vendor cost, we charge an administrative fee for contract management and billing services. Please consult the “How Do We Charge” section for more information regarding the service model.
