No phone billing rate increase for FY20
The annual phone billing will post to Banner in August. There are no rate increases for FY20, but OIT did negotiate a new flat-rate long-distance plan for UAA, UAF and UAS. The new plan will reduce long-distance costs by approximately 50 percent and eliminates the need for tracking monthly long-distance charges for each department - a savings in time and effort for university staff.
The flat-rate charges will be incorporated into the annual telephone charge and works out to approximately $5 per faculty/staff FTE.
If your department currently has phones locked out of long distance service, you may want to consider removing the block.
Contact the OIT Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org or 450-8300) to request long-distance block removal.
