Are all inventory items listed in the Asset database?
The FITC Asset database maintained by Accounting Services is primarily used to track inventory items with an original purchase price of $5,000 or more as well as construction projects with an original budget of $100,000 or more.
Departmental equipment coordinators are responsible for maintaining a separate listing of equipment items considered “highly vulnerable” to theft. This listing should include desirable items such as computers, digital projectors, cameras, recorders, software, power tools, weapons, etc. Information that should be tracked on this listing includes: equipment description, acquisition date, make, model, serial number and any other unique identifying information to assist University Police in case of theft.
