The purpose of Equipment Management is to establish and maintain procedures that bring the University in compliance with Federal, State, and agency regulations that are requirements of the Universities awarded contracts and grants. Equipment Management reviews all transactions relating to the acquisition, modification, transfer and disposition of inventorial equipment assets in order to assist departments with the accuracy and maintenance of inventorial equipment records while adhering to University policy.
What is Inventorial Equipment?
Generally speaking inventorial equipment is any movable tangible property with an acquisition cost exceeding the inventorial threshold of $5,000 with an expected life of one or more years. It must be freestanding, complete in itself, and not lose its identity when affixed or installed into another property. If equipment is a product of many component parts it must maintain its original form and not be re-purposed into different forms or split into separate entities. If any uncertainty exists with classifying inventorial equipment please contact Equipment Management for guidance.
