Effective Date: January 31, 2008

Last Reviewed: June 30, 2015

Reasons for the Policy

Authorization codes are provided to Meharry staff as a means of tracking billing allocations, toll abuse, and to lower long distance costs. A five-digit code is assigned to each user which identifies the caller and the department responsible for the charges.

Policy Statement

Each staff person is responsible for his/her long distance charges. If abuse is detected, Legal Services or Security may become involved to trace the abuse and its cause. Confirmed instances or abuse will be reported to the Division or Department Head. The responsible staff person must pay for the unauthorized calls and may be subject to disciplinary action.
