      University Regualtions Policy 4-005 section III-G-2 explains how an employee can sign up for a cell phone. Section IV gives additional important information including the Cell Phone Allowance agreement. Note that with these changes, this policy is under review and may have some changes. Please review the policy again in the future.

    Memo says that “New guidance will be issued soon on how … you can determine the appropiate reimbursement to cover the “business use” portion of your phone bill.” It’s been over a month since this memo was issued, but we have not received this guidance. I have had several people in our department asking about this. Are we getting this guidance soon??

      We are in the process of putting final touches on the updates to existing Policy 4-005, as well as the procedures and guidelines tied to the policy. These will go to the next President’s Cabinet meeting, this month. We should be publishing the info soon thereafter.

      The procedures/guidelines will provide a method to determine/estimate the business use of a cellular device and the process to establish the reimbursement.

      Thanks for being patient.
