Politicians in Jersey will be given a £600 per year to spend on technology.
Deputy Jeremy Macon, from The Privileges and Procedures Committee (PPC), said it was a more transparent way of providing technology to members.
Currently, members can get broadband, hardware and software from telecom company JT and the States.
Under the new plans, costing about £31,000 per year, members will have control over how they spend the money and would own any hardware they buy.
States Members currently receive a salary of £42,600, plus another £4,000 to cover expenses.
