TCNJ Policy on Personal Calls Using Office Phones

The campus telecommunications services are designed to accommodate employees in carrying out normal College business relations. Occasionally it may be necessary to make personal calls. The Office of Telecommunications would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the cost of personal calls is the responsibility of the individual making the call, and these calls are to be reimbursed to The College. Employees who hold College calling cards or cellular phones are also subject to this policy.

Each month the Office of Telecommunications distributes departmental phone bill reports to every department head. These reports list each long-distance call charged to the authorization codes assigned to the department’s personnel. It is the responsibility of the department or division head to make sure that these reports are distributed to each employee in a timely fashion, and that the reports are audited by the individual employee for any personal usage.

All reimbursements for personal calls should be paid to the Office of Telecommunications by the date indicated on the phone bill report. Telecommunications will accept payment by check, gold club, credit card, or cash (faculty/staff only). Please include the remittance slip from your phone bill report with any payments. Payments for personal calls will be recorded in our Payments ledger. Department heads are welcome to come to our office to review their department’s payment history during our normal business hours.
