  • ISC bills University departments for PennNet Phone costs by directly charging the 5262 object code via BEN Financials; a summary of these charges is shown on the monthly budget report provided by the Comptroller's Office. These charges are stored in the data warehouse, and individuals who have access to the data warehouse for each school and center can create reports on PennNet Phone charges using Business Objects. All costs that can be directly charged back to a specific telephone number or department are identified.

ISC rate increases are generally aligned with University increases.
