Telephones, including both wired (desk phones, including VOIP) and cellular phones issued by the University and paid for by the University are, like all other University assets and services, intended to be used for the purpose of conducting official University business.
As the decision making process for the purchase and distribution of telephone equipment remains a distributed one, the responsibility for the review and compliance with policies governing telecommunications must also be distributed.
To assist departments in this role the following guidelines are provided:
This policy applies to all University data regardless of its medium and/or form, and to all those who handle University information (faculty, staff, students, third party contractors, and any others).
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP)
Communications services such as voice, fax, and voice-messaging that are transported via the Internet, rather than the public switched telephone network.
The Chief Information Officer or his designee will periodically review and update this policy as needed. Questions concerning this policy should be directed to the Office of the Associate VP for Information Technology.
Violations of this policy will result in appropriate disciplinary measures in accordance with University policies, applicable collective bargaining agreements, and state and federal laws.
