How do I keep track of where items are located if they're considered moveable equipment?

Communication within your department is your key tool!

While Accounting Services is responsible for performing an annual physical inventory of all centrally tracked assets, we cannot keep track of the movement of individual equipment items between physical inventories. We recommend that department equipment coordinators communicate regularly with their department managers, supervisors, research investigators, etc.

Additionally when moveable equipment does move throughout the year, department equipment coordinators should contact Brad Barker at barker@ku.edu . We recommend that department equipment coordinators contact Brad Barker to update the location codes at the time that they become aware of the move as updating location codes at the time of movement is a lot easier than trying to remember where an item moved to months later.
