7 Requirements Equipment Inventory 44 CFR Part (d) (2) A physical inventory of the property must be taken and the results reconciled with the property records at least once every two years. (3) A control system must be developed to ensure adequate safeguards to prevent loss, damage, or theft of the property. Any loss, damage, or theft shall be investigated. 7

(5) If the grantee or subgrantee is authorized or required to sell the property, proper sales procedures must be established to ensure the highest possible return. 8

10 Solutions Equipment Inventory 1. Maintain an equipment inventory in compliance with 44 CFR (d). Use your own inventory documentation as long as it includes all elements of 44 CFR Use EMHSD equipment tracking sheet. 10

11 Solutions Equipment Inventory 2. Perform a physical inventory at least every two years and maintain documentation until three years after disposition, replacement or transfer pursuant to 44 CFR (c) (2): (2) Real property and equipment records. The retention period for real property and equipment records starts from the date of the disposition, or replacement, or transfer at the direction of the awarding agency. 11

12 Solutions Equipment Inventory Important-The requirement to maintain inventory and disposition records is different/separate than the requirement to maintain books and records until three years after the close of the grant. If the fiduciary changes, obtain copies of current/prior equipment inventories. It will be important for the Regional Board and Fiduciary to identify responsibilities for maintaining records and conducting physical inventories. 12

13 Scenarios Equipment Inventory 1.The 2006 HSGP grant award closeout was 3/28/11. Region 99 purchased $85, worth of equipment that is being maintained on an equipment inventory list. There are not any outstanding audits or litigation. When may the region dispose of the non-equipment books and records? When may the region dispose of equipment inventory and disposition records? 13
