Inventory of University Assets
The University is mandated by federal grant compliance requirements and generally accepted accounting principles to complete a physical inventory of all assets at least once every two years. As a result of this audit requirement, a physical inventory of the institution’s assets must occur during fiscal year 2014. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) will begin the required property review on Tuesday, May 28. An EHS staff member will call offices at least three business days prior to arrival to confirm the visit. Badged student employees will assist regular staff in scanning bar-coded property tags previously placed on all inventoried assets. These individuals will require access to all rooms, offices, and laboratories on campus to view and scan tagged property. Before proceeding with any work in a building, however, these individuals will check in with the building administrator’s office. Assistance may be requested for access to certain spaces. It is expected this phase of the physical inventory will be substantially completed by Aug. 30, 2013. If any additional access is required beyond this date, arrangements will be made with selected departments. Call EHS at extension 5602 or email Andrew Wolf at for questions or concerns. Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation with this project.
