No phone billing rate increase for FY20

Office of Information Technology


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 ( or 450-8300) to request long-distance block removal.
