Cell Phones

In many positions, cell phones are an essential and an efficient way to carry out University business. However, like any technology, the department/employee should evaluate the cost of using the phone vs. benefits derived and only use this more costly alternative to regular phone service when necessary. Be aware that cell phone costs and usage are subject to scrutiny.
