Long Distance Calling

Long Distance Calling and Cellular Phone Policy for Faculty and Staff

Making personal long-distance calls on NAU phones is prohibited. These calls must be charged to personal calling cards. This policy includes all personal calls on NAU cellular phones. If an emergency long-distance call is made, employees must reimburse the department account for calls at the time of billing. Call types included are in-state and out-of-state calls, calls to information, and all cellular calls.

Long-distance calls on NAU phones must be verified. The method for assuring compliance of this university policy will be left to the discretion of the department or college. Long-distance log sheets may be distributed to individual users for recording phone calls. Those calls may then be checked against the phone bill.

Auditors and NAU personnel periodically check compliance with this policy. Logs must be retained for five years or until the department or college is officially audited.
