Policy: Policy 7-4-4: Use of land-line phones and verification of long distance charges Date Adopted: May 14, 2013
Department: Finance & Administration Contact: Chief Financial Officer
Statement: Western Nevada College telephone equipment and service is to be used for official college business. Phones or fax machines in open access areas should be designed so that long distance calls or faxes cannot be made or sent, and can only be made/sent with personal identification numbers (PIN). In these instances, personnel requiring long distance access must be assigned a PIN through the WNC Facilities Office.

Section 1: Usage Rules

  1. Personal toll calls and/or faxes should not be made from college telephone numbers.
  2. All land-lines costs are paid through the college telephone account. Telephone charges are generally considered to be unallowable as direct costs to federally funded sponsored projects.
  3. The college and/or employee's supervisor, director, HR director, VP or President reserves the right to audit phone usage at any time.
