ITS Conducting Pilot Long Distance Codes Program


Information Technology Services (ITS) is conducting a pilot program to remove the need to enter a code when dialing long distance. The pilot program will run now through June 30, 2019.

After reviewing options for improving IT processes, the decision was made that individuals will no longer be required to enter a code when dialing long distance. In addition to making the process easier for faculty and staff, the removal of a code also simplifies billing and management of long-distance funds.

The change will be in place now through June 30, 2019. During this time, ITS and Business and Finance will review long distance utilization to assess whether this change can be made permanent.

As a result of this change, units will no longer have a budget allocation or expenses related to long distance. If the long-distance code program is reinstated in the 2020 fiscal year, then the budget allocation will be returned.
