2.08.3—Request to Terminate an Internet Service Allowance

Effective: 07/01/2009
Senate Proposal: No
Responsible University Officer: Chief Financial Officer
Responsible Office: Financial Services and Operations

Introduction

An allowance for external internet service will be provided for authorized employees with approval of department chair or director. The external internet service will be in the employee's name for billing purposes and employees will pay the providers directly. This policy is intended to simplify purchasing, reimbursement, and approval issues associated with multiple home internet service providers.

The Cell Phone/Internet Allowance Request Form must be completed by the authorized employee when requesting either:

  1. a new allowance, indicating the amount of the monthly allowance,
  2. a revision to a current allowance, or
  3. terminating an allowance for internet service when it is no longer needed to perform their job.

In the case of the occasional reimbursement for home or off-campus internet service (for 3 months or less), the reimbursement will be submitted on a check request with business documentation attached.

  1. Completes the Cell Phone/Internet Allowance Request Form as follows:
