SYSTEM POLICY CHANGE
David Miller, CFO, has approved a revision to fiscal policy FI0730 – Telephones and Other Communication Devices. The revised policy is effective February 13, 2017 and is now on the policy web site.
FI0730 – Telephones and Other Communication Devices - The University’s fiscal policy on telephones, FI0730 – Telephones and Other Communication Devices, has been updated to remove the requirement for employees to review monthly statements. With personal cell phones becoming common and the cost of long distance calls decreasing, this requirement appears to be obsolete. Instead, employees should only use University phones for personal long distances calls in the case of an emergency. Employees are to notify their supervisor about the emergency long distance calls and may be asked for reimbursement depending on campus or departmental policies. Thanks to Aaron Haynes at the Health Science Center for suggesting this change.
