This policy describes the assignment, use and management of desk telephones by employees of Farmingdale State. The College provides for the use of desk telephones by employees whose duties and responsibilities require immediate communications capabilities.
The Chief Administrative Officer or designee is responsible for the administration of telephone use, including the acquisition of cellular telephones, the specific service plan for telephone use, and the method of reimbursement for personal telephone calls by employees. The acquisition of telephone services (including cellular telephones) and service plans must be in accordance with the State University of New York Administrative Procedures Manual—Item 300—Purchasing and Contract Procedures.
- A monthly usage bill will be provided to each employee assigned a desk telephone. The employee is responsible for reviewing the monthly usage bill and must reimburse Farmingdale State for personal calls.
- The responsibility for assigned desk telephones cannot be transferred to another employee. When an employee to whom a desk telephone has been assigned terminates employment or transfers to another campus position, the telephone remains in the original work location.
- Any employee assigned a desk telephone who fails to comply with the College’s desk telephone policy may have telephone privileges suspended.
- Desk Telephone Reimbursement shall be transmitted to the Accounts Payable Department in a timely fashion via check made out to the Farmingdale State Telephone Account.
