State University of New York. Study of the Cost of Telephone Services at Selected Campuses. Report 95-D-44.
New York State Office of the Comptroller, Albany. Div. of Management Audit.
This report presents data on costs associated with providing telephone service at 14 campuses of the State University of New York (SUNY) for the period January 1, 1994 through December 31, 1995. It examines the factors that affect overall costs of telephone service, and what opportunities exist for reducing telephone costs. The report includes information on: (1) local service costs and revenues, comparing costs for services purchased from local carriers with private branch exchange (PBX) capital and operating costs or leases from public telephone companies; (2) long-distance service costs; and (3) costs of using a state-owned network system. The report concludes that a great many factors and decisions affect telephone service costs. It makes no system-wide recommendations, but raises a series of questions. Appended is the reply of SUNY officials regarding these questions concerning system administration, and the situation at specific campuses. (CH)
