Telephone and Other Communication Services


Necessary local and long distance telephone calls for business purposes are reimbursable when appropriately documented on the travel voucher. Long distance telephone calls must be supported by listing on the form: name of party called, date of call, and reason for call. For local calls, only date of call is required.

With respect to telegrams, the name and address of the person to whom the telegram was sent and the date must be noted on the travel voucher.

Charges for necessary faxing of documents are reimbursable. The date, purpose, fax number to which the document was sent, recipient, and number of pages must be noted on the travel voucher. Receipts, if available, should be attached to the form.
