6 Controllers Office A couple of definitions… Capital Asset - Any purchase of physical equipment with a cost greater than or equal to $5000- (including sales tax, start-up supplies, delivery, and installation) with a useful life greater than one year. For example, if you purchase a piece of equipment for $4800- it will most likely be considered a Capital Asset after taxes, etc. Custody Code – The custody code is a 4-digit code issued by CAM at the behest of the department. Each custody code requires a custodian who is responsible for tracking the equipment. Departments are required to supply a custody code number to Procurement Services when a requisition is created.

39 Controllers Office Physical Inventory – Process Per State and Federal regulations complete inventory of campus and medical center required every 2 years. CAM will provide custodian with a list of equipment by custody code. Custodian embarks on search or organizes search party to locate and verify each piece of equipment listed.

44 Controllers Office Physical Inventory – Field Audit All submittals for a particular month are subject to a random sampling audit. CAM randomly selects 10% of the asset population sent in during the targeted month. CAM s custodian with assets to be verified clearly identified. A CAM team member and the department asset custodian travels to the location specified in the physical inventory findings by appointment to confirm accuracy of reported data. An error rate of 10% or less of sample population constitutes a successfully- completed physical inventory. An error rate of greater than 10% requires a second random sampling audit. If the second audit is unsuccessful, all custodial departments submitting physical inventories for the target month will need to re-take their physical inventories. PROCESSES

45 Controllers Office Physical Inventory – Summary The departmental physical inventory is considered complete when: Custodian returns listing with corrections; CAM enters corrections and sends the updated inventory report to custodian; Custodian and department head signs off that the inventory report is accurate; Statistical sampling audit produces 10% or fewer errors.
