Inventory Policies and Procedures DE-437 (Required)
Class Objectives Establish an understanding of Inventory and Inventorys role. Understand why a physical inventory is conducted. Understand the basic steps of performing physical inventory. Recognize the importance of updating inventory statuses and locations
Why is inventory management so important? Because The University of Texas at Austin has over $2 billion worth of assets in which to maintain and report to the State of Texas and over $160 million reportable to federal agencies. The best way to track equipment is to know where the equipment is at all times. Always update the location of an asset in *DEFINE commands NV1, NVP, or the FRMS Departmental Inventory Portal when the location changes!!!!!
Lets keep UT out of the headlines!
Whose stuff is it anyway? All equipment is considered state property unless designated as federal or privately owned! Ownership codes for an item are determined by funding source: Look for the following on your equipment listing to determine who owns the asset: U-University, P-Private, F-Federal
How are assets acquired? Purchases - purchase orders, Procards (VP7), etc. Purchases - purchase orders, Procards (VP7), etc. Noncash gifts from vendors, individuals, etc. must be reported through the University Development Office. Noncash gifts from vendors, individuals, etc. must be reported through the University Development Office. Transfers into the university as a result of a Principal investigator (PI). Notify Inventory Services at Transfers into the university as a result of a Principal investigator (PI). Notify Inventory Services at Inter-agency transfers from another state agency such as TX DOT, UTMD Anderson. Complete and submit form Inter-agency transfers from another state agency such as TX DOT, UTMD Anderson. Complete and submit form Property Transfer Receipt – Incoming to Inventory Services.Property Transfer Receipt – Incoming

How are assets acquired? continued Completed fabrications or CIP - departments complete construction of one of a kind item. See HBP for definition of fabrication: Completed fabrications or CIP - departments complete construction of one of a kind item. See HBP for definition of fabrication: Handbook of Business Procedures (HBP) Fabrication/Cannibalization of Equipment. Handbook of Business Procedures (HBP) Fabrication/Cannibalization of Equipment. Government-furnished equipment - GFE equipment is furnished by the U.S. government to the university to be used for research and development in research contracts or grants.

Federal excess personal property - government-furnished equipment that is obsolete to the government Federal excess personal property - government-furnished equipment that is obsolete to the government For any questions regarding CIP, GFE, and FEP, contact the Federal Inventory team at
Non-monetary Gift If your department receives any non-momentary or noncash gift such as equipment, furniture, software, artwork,or vehicles from an individual donor or corporation please report these assets to the UT Development Office for appropriate recording. Inventory Services is notified by the Development Office once the gift process has been finalized for possible inclusion to the Inventory system. Because of IRS tax donor credit once added the gift must remain in *DEFINE for two years before it can be disposed of or transferred to surplus. The department should contact the Development office if such a need arises before the 2 years.
Inventory Services Role Maintains equipment inventory records on shared mainframe database. Locates and tags university equipment as it is purchased and received by departments. For departments that self-tag, we use their details to add assets to *DEFINE. Conducts and monitors the annual physical inventory cycle. Audit those reports submitted by the university departments.
Inventory Services Role Provides inventory information and reference resources to department personnel. Ensure that university and state policy guidelines are being met. Reports and reconciles inventory records and values to: Annual financial report schedules State of Texas Comptrollers Office Federal agencies
The Inventory Contacts Role Tracking (tagging and updating items locations in *DEFINE or Inventory web portal if asset moves) Reporting (conduct annual physical inventory and report results on certification) Reconcile (NVP department equipment listing to what you have in your possession and c omplete IRR removal forms for relinquished equipment)
What gets tagged? Capitalized Assetsassets whose purchased value is equal to or greater than $5,000 Controlled Assetsassets whose cost is between $500 and $4, and fall under the special category designated by the state Tracking Inventory
Examples of Controlled Equipment ($500 to $ ) cameras & camcorders projectors stereo systems televisions & VCRs computers: desktop CPUs or portable laptops Smart Phones, Tablets and other HandHelds hand guns & rifles, regardless of cost
computer-related equipment not PCs or laptops scientific equipment monitors printers or servers hard drives cards furniture Software - Software must be 100K or more to be capitalized and Licenses must be greater than 1 year. In order to be tagged and included on your inventory, this equipment must be $5,000 or more in value (it becomes capitalized). What is not controlled?
Tagging the Equipment Inventory field representatives They are deployed automatically based on purchasing data. To request tagging, Departments that participate in self-tagging After tagging assets, these departments send the tagging detail to Inventory Services for processing. This information should be sent monthly. Tracking Inventory
All capitalized or designated controlled assets must be tagged within 30 days of receipt. See Best Practices for self-tagging on our web page https://www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/in/ Any asset not meeting the controlled or capitalized thresholds should have a non- inventory object code and will not be added to *DEFINE. These assets can be tagged with blank tags that identify the item as UT property but do not have a tracking number. Tracking Inventory
Questions you may have when conducting physical inventory. Who? Why? When? And How? Who is designated as the inventory contact responsible to ensure that my department is compliant? Why do we conduct a physical inventory? When do we perform inventory? How is physical inventory performed?
If you are assigned the role of the inventory contact for your area: Verify the *DEFINE GG5 screen for accuracy. Work with your supervisor and team members to determine which unit codes you are responsible for. Be sure that the correct inventory contact is listed in GG5 for all units and subunits in your department. If your name is listed, you are responsible. To determine who is your contact see *DEFINE command GG5 for contact information for your department
*DEFINE command GG5 can be updated via the OHS system To assign department contacts at the unit code level, go to List Contacts in the (OHS) Organizational HierarchyList Contacts System. This new system will allow you to assign secondary or backup contacts. https://utdirect.utexas.edu/ohs/contacts/ To update the unit head of a unit, complete the complete the Signature Desk Request form /
Why do we conduct a Physical Inventory? The provisions of the 52 nd Legislature: Regular Session 1951 House Bill Number 753, Section 5 (3) Requires state organizations to take a complete physical inventory of all equipment in their possessions once each year Results reported to: State Comptroller TEX.GOVT CODE ANN.sec (b)
When do we perform Inventory? Inventory Services establishes eight inventory cycles. Cycle deadlines are based on the number of items assigned to the departments. The deadline for Cycle 1 is Jan. 27, All other Cycle deadlines will occur between February through June. The FY13-14 cycles have been posted to the inventory web page and may be viewed at anytime. Please Note-You may begin your inventory at any time the system is open- the earlier the better.
How is physical inventory performed? Manual status update to *DEFINE or Inventory web portal if you have 100 items or less. Status updates via scanning your equipment. Once *DEFINE is open you may request a scanner by ing:
Complete Four Basic Steps Use the NVP report: The annual physical inventory process is a procedure performed annually to account for assets and equipment belonging to the university. 1. Locate 2. Scan 3. Reconcile 4. Report
Tips, Tidbits, and Hints Start early. Keep a trail of paperwork. Make copies. Use correct inventory forms. Notify Inventory Services of untagged or tagged equipment not on *DEFINE that meets the threshold. Request a new barcode/tag when: damaged worn missing will not scan If Self-tagging, communicate New Tag info.
Safeguarding Assets Be organized. Keep a record of off-campus equipment. Be observant. Frequently monitor all current assets. Be perceptive. Keep an eye on equipment awaiting Surplus pickup. Be efficient. Keep track of assets out for repair.

Understanding the NVP Report printout. Each report consists of 2 sections: Found New fiscal year acquisitions are typically indicated as found when they are added to your inventory. CIP- construction in progress. NETL-items found through the (UNET) Network locator Not Found (need to locate) Items transferred in Any prior-year asset acquisitions Items previously indicated as missing-continue to look for these items and change the status if the item is found. You do not need to remark as missing if the asset was not found during the annual physical inventory process.
Additional Information: 9XXXXX Numbers Why are there inventory numbers on my NVP report beginning with 9 that are not affixed to my equipment? Because of system limitations, Inventory Services must clear out the *DEFINE NU1 screen at the end of the fiscal year and assign virtual numbers for tracking and reporting purposes. Do I need to find these items? Yes. Part of the certification requirement is to work with Inventory Services to get any items with these virtual numbers converted to university barcode tags that can be scanned. Only software, CIP, or artwork can have a virtual number.
Additional Information: 9XXXXX Numbers-continued Notify Inventory Services: If you have virtual numbers for equipment other than software and artwork. Example: Dell G4 computer was tagged Please include the serial number. Self-tagging: Tag equipment. Send spreadsheet to Inventory Services.
What is New with the NVP equipment listing? In addition to purchased, gifted or transferred in equipment the NVP report will now include fabricated items also known as CIP (construction in progress) What is fabricated or CIP equipment? Fabrication is a transitional state; completed items of fabricated equipment are recorded as capital equipment in the university's asset DEFINE system. Until that completion can be determined they are CIP. How do I account for these on my NVP? Do I need to find these items? No these items should already be indicated as found.
Characteristics of Fabricated Equipment one-of-a-kind items meet unique research specifications created by assembling a number of components (manufactured or custom made) built or assembled from individual parts or materials built by or under the direction of university personnel Most fabrications are: sponsor-funded have a number of compliance requirements related to acquisition and tracking individual pieces of equipment in an assembled fabrication.
How will I know CIP items from other items on my NVP Report?

The Inventory Federal team will be following up to see whether the construction has been completed or is still in progress. For any questions, please contact Federal Inventory at The end products value is the sum of: All services purchased and used in the fabrication process Example: Welding, machine shop time All items purchased and used in the fabrication process must become a permanent part of the end products value Unless: destroyed during testing consumed in fabrication. Upon completion, a fabricated equipment must have: an aggregate cost of $5,000 or more a useful life greater than one year.
Step 1: Locate Use the NVP report to locate assets identified as Not Found (need to locate) If you cant find an asset, look everywhere: offices/classrooms labs closets/storage areas previous documentation/files check off campus forms or logs check Request for Removal of Equipment forms ask or coworkers to assist with locating
Step 1: Scan When scanning barcodes during the inventory process, all equipment within any one room should be scanned. This will provide an update of the location to the actual equipment owners if another department owns it. Scanning an item will not change ownership. It will simply create a transaction line on NV1 Screen 3 for the inventory item showing the date and logon ID of the person who scanned the item.
Step 2: Scan Continued While scanning, if an item is: Found Continue scanning until you finish or have reached approximately 200 items. Arrange to bring the scanner in to upload data. Repeat this process until all scanning is done. Not foundNotate this on the NVP report to further investigate or run a new NVP after downloading scanned results to see what still needs to be found.
Step 3: Reconcile Scanning takes care of most updates. Make notes on the NVP report printout of updates you need to make in *DEFINE or FRMS Departmental Inventory Portal Use either NVP or NV1 to make updates. NVP sorts by unit code NV1 sorts by inventory number (more options) FRMS Departmental Inventory Portal -new option No items status should be left blank.
Step 3: Reconcile continued Certifications will not be considered complete until all blanks are finalized with either Found or Missing. If an item is listed on your NVP but is no longer in your possession and has been cannibalized, traded-in or has left UT submit the IRR request for removal as soon as possible. Track your items year round and not just during the certification process.
How do I keep track of off-campus inventory items? For items kept off campus, use the Respon EID field on the NV1 screen (2 ) in *DEFINE to list the item's custodian. Also include the off-campus location in the Loc Notes field. These fields can also be updated using the inventory web portal NOTE: at the departmental level, sign-out logs are required to be kept. You may use the Equipment Located off Campus form if your department does not have an existing method for logging equipment.Equipment Located off Campus form
Off-Campus Equipment Schedule a day for all off-campus equipment to be returned for scanning. Notify all staff who have equipment removed from campus to return those specific items on the scheduled date for inventory scanning. Get photo verification for any equipment that cannot be brought in for scanning
Updating in *DEFINE command NV1 The following fields may be updated by the department: serial number and item Respon EID: (screen 2) Site building locations floor room numbers equipment statusfound or missing Please note -The location, status and responsible EID of an item can also be updated via the inventory web portal. Always keep the location current!
Are You Really Missing an Item? Remember, every item counts. Before you mark that item as missing in *DEFINE NV1 or Inventory web portal: Make sure item is not being kept off campus, being repaired, or overlooked in the initial scan. Check your department records and databases for possible transfers, cannibalizations, disposals, etc. If item is a computer or laptop check with your IT/LAN staff
Are You Really Missing an Item? If the item you cannot find is a vehicle, please file a police report with UTPD. They have been successful in locating missing vehicles that have been abandoned or were impounded. Fleet Management requires that the police be notified when a vehicle cannot be located. Check *DEFINE screen 3 to see who last found the item. If you cant locate the item, mark it as missing, but continue to look for it the next time you perform your physical inventory.
See *DPUSER instructions Example of when looking up a login might be useful: Screen 3 shows that a printer was last scanned by INCPJ in September You cannot find this printer, so you want to know who INCPJ is to follow up with him/her regarding this piece of equipment. If you follow the *DPUSER instructions, you should be able to get the following information: _ JACOBSON,CECILIA INCPJ INVENTORY How and when would I look up a Login ID?
The item is in my unit code what choices do I have? If you want the equipment back, you can retrieve the item. Transfer ownership and tracking responsibilities by doing a CCART transfer. Looking up a Login ID continued

Or by selecting the missing status on the inventory web portal
View Percentage of Unfound Items Unfound percentage includes items indicated as missing or left blank. Your NVP report has a percentage figure at the end of the listing. 1.To view your units unfound percentages without running a report, go to *INPERC from the COMPASS screen. 2.Press ENTER and another screen will appear. 3.Type the first four digits of your unit code, and press ENTER.
View Percentage of Unfound Items Comp Unit Unfound % Unfound Depr Amt Total Depr Amt As of Date/Time % 150, , /08/03 00: % 150, , /08/03 00:48 You should not have at or above two percent unfound. If you do, there could be a penalty assessed. The penalty would be assessed on the depreciated amount of any missing or stolen items with a disposal of 17, 18, 20 or 21.
Certification of Departmental Annual Physical Inventory Once you have completed all equipment scanning, manual updates, and you have done due diligence to find all missing assets you are ready to certify. The certification form certifies that: all items have been inventoried regardless of depreciated value. all items are accounted for within your department and their status has been updated in *DEFINE or via the Inventory web portal. all removal paperwork has been submitted.
Step 4: Report Download Certification Form from the Inventory Services website. The Certification Form must be completed and signed by: department chair or equivalent department inventory contact A current and complete NVP report must be included with the certification form Turn in your inventory certification before or by the designated due date
Relinquishing Inventory (Inventory Request for Removal) Transfer or Removal Type of Removals Three–Step process for removing
Before you discard an item please note! Not everything requires a barcode tag; however, everything is an asset and is considered state property, even if it is not in *DEFINE or if it has a zero depreciated value. Items should never be trashed! Send all obsolete items to Surplus For equipment designated as federal or private, contact the Federal Inventory team at
Is it a Transfer or Removal? Will ownership of the property remain with the university? Yes Use a CCART. This includes donations to other departments within UT Transfers to Surplus. No Submit an inventory removal request to Inventory Services. Do this before the item leaves the university.
CCART transfer to Surplus Property - Unit ( ) When property exceeds its life expectancy and/or is no longer needed, send to Surplus. CCART creates an NT1 Electronic Transfer doc. Be sure to remove insurance. For questions, please contact Risk Management at or Erase all sensitive data from hard drives. Keep a list of outstanding NT1 document IDs until the transfer has been processed. Checking the routing.
When should an IRR (inventory request for removal) form be used? IRR Removals do not include: transfers to surplus. transfers to other departments. missing items. IRR Removals do include: cannibalization PI transfer stolen donations trade-in sale other
Type of Removal: Cannibalization YES Remove the parts needed Send the excess to Surplus via CCART NO Dismantle the equipment Submit barcode tag with the IRR form Are parts left over?
Type of Removal: PI Transfer Definition: Principle Investigator (PI) leaves the university and takes research equipment with him/her. Usually involves 26-accounts. 60 Days before the PI leaves, submit the IRR and letter of justification. A PI is never allowed to take equipment without prior approval from the property manager. Type of Removal: Transfers to Non- State of TEXAS Agency submit the IRR and letter of justification for equipment going to out of state. Transfers to other State of Texas Agencies entities will require an Outgoing Transfer form or the Incoming Transfer form
Type of Removal: Stolen File police report immediately. Send completed IRR form to Inventory as soon as the police report has been obtained and should not exceed 48 hours after the incident Prepare letter of justification. Within the letter of justification, must note if the item stolen was or was not due to employee negligence. Also, if the item stolen is a computer or laptop, please answer these 2 questions in the letter of justification: 1. Did the computer contain any Category I data? 2. Was the computer encrypted? In addition, if item stolen is a computer or laptop, it must be reported on the Information Security Office (ISO) Stolen Equipment Report form located here: https://security.utexas.edu/violation/iso_theft_form/ https://security.utexas.edu/violation/iso_theft_form/
Type of Removal: Donation-outside of Surplus Must be made to a qualifying agencies: In-state require certificate of eligibility from the Texas Facilities Commission. Out-of-state: Similar documentation must be provided. Only nontechnology items are allowed. Technology Equipment State law mandates priority be made to. school districts Texas correctional institutions Hard drives must be cleaned. Verification of hard drive clean must accompany the IRR form.
Type of Removal: Sale Should go through Surplus Unless there are extenuating circumstances. Departments can request that proceeds from the sale be deposited into their account. Sales outside of Surplus Submit an IRR and letter of justification. Approvals must be granted before the sale is conducted. Include an agreement of sale, if available. Copy of receipt of funds, such as copy of check, and document ID# of deposit into departmental account in *DEFINE.
Type of Removal: Other Returned to vendor Damaged items or items returned to vendor for some other reason. Trade-ins Returned to the agency sponsoring a project grants military contracts Anything that doesnt fit previously covered Submit as much documentation as possible
What is new about equipment traded- in? All equipment being traded-in will now require an IRR Request for removal form even if the trade–in was annotated on the Purchase Order of new item. Include the following for the item being traded in: inventory number serial number trade-in value or summary Include copy of the P.O. of the new item. Note:-the trade in value will be added as an element to the new item in *DEFINE
