go around them. write your own job scheduler. its easy to do. its just an 
infinite loop that polls on a certain directory. just have a data file that 
tells it what to run and when. you can use the 'date' function to manage time. 
its pretty easy. you are technically not violating any rules by doing this. 

What company did the audit? I will make sure not to hire them.
