Telecommuting Protocols and Allowances

While it is important that our staff and faculty are able to work as productively as possible while telecommuting, we must also, in all cases, avoid unnecessary or duplicate purchases of office supplies, office equipment, and office chairs to be used at home.

In every possible circumstance, those items should be checked-out from the workplace for use in the home environment rather than purchased. Where this is not possible, departments must follow the UNM Telecommuter Home Office Purchase of Supplies, Equipment, and Furniture procedure for all telecommuting purchases.
