3 Lifecycle of an Asset Equipment Inventory 3

4 Financial management practices APO Certification 4 University operations are organized into Organizational Units that develop and execute strategic and tactical plans to carry out the University's mission and achieve its objectives. These units obtain and utilize resources, the financial impact of which is accumulated and summarized in the University's financial records. Financial records are an important management tool, used to both measure and monitor the acquisition and use of resources. Sound financial management practices, the State of Colorado statutes, fiscal rules, and federal regulations require the University to implement fiscal policies and procedures that: Reasonably ensure the fiscal impact of University operations are planned, controlled, and accurately accounted for in the University's financial records; Reasonably ensure Fiscal Transactions comply with applicable policies, laws, regulations and rules, contracts, grants, donor restrictions, and generally accepted accounting principles; Require an Internal Control environment to accomplish the above two objectives.

5 Inventory Schedule CSU has two Inventory Specialists and each organization/department has been assigned one of two Inventory Specialists, responsible for conducting a physical inventory of all assets capitalized under each organization code in CAM. Current Organization FY inventory schedule is as follows: Odd Fiscal Years:Even Fiscal Years: Equipment Inventory 5 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

6 Property ID Number The Property Management Office uses a smart coding decal system and is responsible for tagging all equipment for which the University is accountable. Ownership can be identified by the first digit of the number on the tag and the barcode is used by the Inventory Specialist to verify equipment. Tag Number Title/Owner 2xxxxx-3xxxxxUniversity 5xxxxxSponsor or Other 6xxxxxFederal Government 7xxxxxUniversity owned Artwork 8xxxxxLessor 9xxxxxNon-Capital – Internally tracked by department If an asset is missing the CSU decal number, a new decal sticker will need to be printed and affixed to the equipment. Equipment Inventory 6 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

7 Property ID Decal It is incredibly important to maintain the decal throughout the lifecycle. In some cases it is the only unique identifiable marking on the equipment Easily distinguishes Capital equipment from non-capital Initial decal on new equipment establishes the property record for audit and insurance It is also much easier to verify during an equipment inventory or audit Often equipment that is not decaled or the decal has been removed is: not tracked or dispositioned correctly leading to: unnecessary loss to the University and could result in: cancellation of funding for ongoing and future research projects Fiscal recompense Legal prosecution Equipment Inventory 7 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

8 Inventory Kick Off To ensure separation of duties, the primary inventory verification is performed by the Property Management Office with reconciliation of exceptions done by departments. The Property Management Office is responsible for the development and implementation of the biennial inventory schedule. The department will be contacted in advance by an Inventory Specialist in order to start the inventory and to determine the need for an initial meeting or review of asset records. Equipment Inventory 8 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

9 Inventory Scanning Kuali Capital Asset Management (CAM) is the Property Management database used as the data source and system of record for equipment from physical inventory activity. The inventory is completed using a handheld computer, with a barcode scanner to electronically verify the CSU tag number affixed to capital movable equipment. The Inventory Specialist will start the inventory by scanning all the capital equipment that is visible to the eye. If there is equipment in a drawer or cabinet or locked up, the Specialist will not look there and the asset representative will be contacted to show the Specialist the equipment. Equipment Inventory 9 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

10 Assets unable to be scanned Require approved method of verification to confirm the existence, location, department, project accountability, and utilization status of equipment. For asset locations more than 70 miles from main campus: 1 of the following bullets A dated photograph and statement from the Asset Representative Maintenance or certification record by a 3 rd party (TSS, Oil and Lube, etc.. ) For assets behind a “barrier”: 1 of the following bullets A dated photograph and statement from the asset representative. Maintenance service or certification record by a 3 rd party Sensitive items or Artwork: 1 of the following bullets Readily identifiable characteristics in property record in order to correctly validate asset Decal and or serial number of associated equipment Software or Virtual assets: Product Key or License and IP address or computer serial number where software is housed Equipment Inventory 10 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

11 Checked out Equipment The Property Management Office will require documentation of capital assets, on loan or checked out, verifying the following: Verification of Borrower ID Verify the Asset Representative name in the Property Record is still accurate. Verification of Borrower’s address The physical address for the primary home location of the asset. If it lives in a home or office off campus more than 6 of 12 months this would be the physical address of the home or office. Verification of Stored at address: The address at which the property is currently being utilized. Documentation: A statement of accountability including current project status and functionality, by the custodian along with dated photographic verification of the asset in place. Equipment Inventory 11 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

12 Un-tagged Assets: During the inventory process the Inventory Specialist will look for equipment that could, potentially, be capital but does not appear on the inventory list. If an untagged asset having a value of $5,000 or more is found, and is not on the departmental asset list, the DPC will need to provide documentation on how the equipment was acquired. Equipment Inventory 12 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

13 Inventory Reconciliation 1.The DPC will be provided a report listing the asset(s) that the Specialist was unable to find, as well as any equipment not appearing in the CAM database. 2.The DPC will contact the responsible party listed on the report or any other pertinent party to identify the location of the equipment. Once the location is determined and verified, the DPC will contact the Specialist. 3.The DPC will research and provide documentation for all assets identified as unrecorded in the CAM database. Equipment Inventory 13 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

14 Researching un-tagged Assets: Best Practices for researching un-tagged Assets: If a gift or donated asset is not currently on the departmental inventory it must be determined whether the gift or direct donation has been correctly reported to Advancement. Transferred-in capital assets are received by the Department directly from an external organization or government surplus must be reported to Advancement An “Add Equipment to the Kuali Financial System” will help you capture the pertinent details (find the form here If the equipment was purchased through the CSU procurement system the purchase order number should be researched. It is possible that the equipment was “expensed” rather than “capitalized”. If the asset was retired in error, or the asset has since been found, the retired asset will be added to the reinstate list for upload into CAM. If the equipment was acquired as part of a construction project it must be determined whether the equipment should be capitalized as movable or fixed. You will be asked to provide the itemized construction contract with the possibility of having the equipment appraised for depreciation value. Check P-Card purchases (and purchase orders) in case it was bought in pieces and assembled later. Equipment Inventory 14 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

15 Locating Assets: Best Practices for locating Assets: 1.Contact Asset Representative 2.“Lookup all Related Capital Asset Documents” for clues to the last known location. 3.Search through all EACR forms submitted since the last inventory cycle( it makes it easier if you have a central location for them and all lines are filled out completely) 4.Contact all known associates or lab personnel that may have worked with or around the equipment. 5.Contact all department and/or lab managers in case equipment was relocated 6.Contact all related departments on campus (particularly if you have research or operations in multiple buildings). 7.Search store rooms, holding areas or warehousing locations. (this is easier if you have a utilization program in place and are not holding on to unused or under utilized equipment) 8.Check service records in the event something has been “sent out” for maintenance Equipment Inventory 15 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

16 Inventory Reconciliation 1.Assets that are un-found will be carried over for two inventory cycles and all efforts made by the Department and the Inventory Specialist to locate them will be documented on the Action Plan. (see also Accountability) 2.Assets that have been improperly dispositioned or have been missing for 2 inventory cycles will require a separate Action Plan and documentation of accountability before being retired as lost. Equipment Inventory 16 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

17 Inventory Close-Out If a department successfully accounts for 100% of their assets, the Specialist will deliver an inventory certificate to be signed by the Dean or Department Head and returned to the Property Management Office within two weeks. If a department has any improper disposal retirements or assets that are determined to be left as unfound until the next inventory cycle, the Specialist will schedule an Inventory Close-Out meeting where the results of the inventory will be discussed with the Property Management Office Administrator, the Dean or Department Head and DPC. The Campus Services Representative and Department Business Officer will be invited to the meeting and all parties involved in the reconciliation are encouraged to attend. Equipment Inventory 17 Press the forward button at the bottom of each slide to advance

18 Accountability Accountability, both fiscal and actual, is at the Department Chair level, with additional stewardship responsibilities at the Asset Representative or custodian level. Departments are required to meet an inventory performance goal of 98% (100% for Sponsor or Agency owned) which conforms to the current property management industry standard for the percentage of assets located during an inventory cycle. Departments that do not reach 100% found assets will be required to submit an Action Plan to the Property Management Office outlining in detail the investigation of the missing assets as well as the process revisions the department will implement to improve performance in subsequent cycles going forward. In addition to the Action Plan, the Property Management Office will conduct a formal meeting with the DPC and APO where recommendations and implementations are discussed and a timetable is established for the department to correct any deficiencies. The results of all physical inventories will be sent to the Associate Vice President of Finance at the end of each Fiscal Year.
