Electronic Communications Allowance Program

Overview

The University's Operating Policy 24.02 (regarding cell phones) has been replaced by Operating Policy 24.04 in response to IRS regulations requiring elaborate record-keeping and monitoring for every call on university-owned cell phones or PDAs. As a result of these policy changes, Angelo State University employees are required to take the actions detailed below in order to comply with the new Electronic Communication Device policy.

All university employees who are required to carry a mobile device for ASU business purposes will receive a monthly allowance for the cell phone service of their choice. The allowance program allows the university employee to combine their business and personal phone service, but the employee is personally responsible for the service agreement.

For departments who may require university-owned cell phones, please refer to Operating Policy 24.04 for details regarding record keeping requirements.
