Cell Phone Allowance
Payment Services News!
If your department has multiple individuals receiving regular cell phone reimbursements, Payment Services has a special program to automate the monthly payments. We can set up employees on a recurring monthly payment schedule to streamline the existing reimbursement procedure. The recurring schedule will eliminate the manual steps involved with submitting a PTA Payment Request in TechMart.
Payments for cell phone usage is covered under the IRS Accountable Plan for legitimate and necessary business activities on behalf of Caltech. Individual departments are responsible for verifying the employee's eligibility and adherence to Institute Policy. Below are some guidelines about the program:
- Cell phone usage must serve a valid business purpose.
- Reimbursement amount of $25-$50 per month is the general range.
- Payment amount is determined by individual departments.
- Payment is effective when the form is approved and submitted (by 15th of the month).
- Allowance payment through this program is NOT retroactive. Any payments for previous months will be treated as reimbursement requests and must be submitted in TechMart with corresponding billing statements.
- Department must notify Payment Services if an employee is no longer eligible for the program or employed at Caltech.
For more information, please contact the Specialty Team at SpecialtyTeam@caltech.edu

Department Codes are used at Caltech to identify purchasing and payment transactions by campus groups. Codes are assigned to groups, departments, buildings, or work areas, not to individuals. Their purpose of department codes is to facilitate the routing of paperwork. This list is owned by Purchasing Services and maintained by the Procurement Support Team.
