Revision Letter Number Two Hundred Eleven


This BPPM revision includes the following changes:

Property Inventory 20.50

This revision removes small and attractive items (other than weapons and laptop computers) from the University’s central inventory system. Individual departments are responsible for identification and control of small and attractive items.

This revision also makes the inventory limit for equipment purchased from sponsored accounts the same as for state-funded equipment, i.e., first cost of $5000 or more. However, all federally-furnished equipment is inventoried, regardless of cost.

Inventory Control Reports are required for all transfers to Surplus Stores, regardless of the value of the property.

Animals for Instructions and Research 80.30

The Laboratory Animal Resources Center (LARC) has removed this section.
