Policy for Account Manager Responsibilities

Account managers are responsible for authorizing the assignment of codes to their respective employee and for reviewing the monthly call detail for employee. In reviewing monthly call detail, the account manager should consider the following. The average call lasts only about three minutes. Does the employee's position require lengthy conference calls? Is there an unusual pattern of repetitive calls to the same number with longer duration? Such patterns might indicate personal use and as an account manager you are responsible for ensuring the appropriate use of the state's resources.
