Is it true that cell phones of administrators are paid by the University?

Response: 

University administrators are eligible for a cell phone allowance of up to $90 per month for a cell phone with a data plan and text ($50 per month for text only cell phone plan). They are also eligible for an allowance of up to $240 per every two years toward the purchase of a wireless communication device. These allowances must be approved by the administrator’s supervisor.
