About the policy
What kind of technology do you use in your role at The City? Are you using email, the Internet, smartphones, computers or printers? Increasingly, we need technology to communicate with each other, Calgarians and customers. It can be an essential tool to deliver exceptional public service.
As part of our commitment to protect The City’s reputation and responsible use of taxpayer dollars, technology should be used for its intended purpose - that is where the Acceptable Use of City Technology Resources Policy guides us.
This policy benefits you, Calgarians and The City by:
- Setting the standard for acceptable technology resource use for employees; ensuring we’re all playing by the same rules.
- Safeguarding City assets, data and information from abuses and threats.
- Protecting both The City and employees by providing a standard by which questions of acceptable technology resource use can be gauged.
- Promoting the safe and responsible use of technology resources in a way that uses taxpayer dollars responsibly and protects The City’s reputation.
This policy applies to you if you are a(n):
- City of Calgary employee
- City volunteer
- Temporary or seasonal worker
- City contractor
