  1. GETTING TO KNOW YOUR FIXED ASSETS/EQUIPMENT INVENTORY Kathy Schultz

  2. PURCHASING & FIXED ASSETS • Request for Purchase (requisition) • Defining Fixed Assets • Unit cost of $5,000.00 or more (effective 7/1/07) • Complete in itself • Does not lose its identity even though it may become a component part of another item when placed in use • Life expectancy of 1 year or more • Special items regardless of cost • revolvers, shotguns, pyrotechnic devices, vehicles

  3. CATEGORIES OF ASSETS • Equipment • Buildings/Building improvements • Land/Land improvements • Collections • Fixtures • Library books • Intangibles • Effective FY10

  4. PURCHASING & FIXED ASSETS • What makes up the cost? • Shipping/installation/shipping insurance • No: • maintenance agreements • training expenses • supplies • Funds • State/grant/other (asset type) • “NOTE” screen • Coding (60 vrs 30)

  5. PURCHASING & FIXED ASSETS • Why do we need to give it an asset tag? • Responsibility • Tracking/indentifying • Missing tags • When do we book an asset (“in-service” date)? • Payment Voucher (PV) date (equipment valued at less than $50,000) • “In-service” date determined through direct contact and confirmation with the user department (equipment with a total cost of $50,000 )

  6. BETTERMENTS • What is a betterment? • A betterment of inventoried equipment is any modification which changes or alters a unit’s original function/design and certain major repairs.  Contact BCN Purchasing to determine if a repair is deemed major.  The depreciation schedule and the useful life may need to be adjusted.   • Betterment versus repair • Betterment threshold is $5,000.00 • Referencing asset tag number • Numbering on inventory list • x.xxxxxxA

  7. FABRICATIONS • What is a fabrication? • A fabrication is a piece of equipment that is being constructed at the University by University personnel.  Generally, each part of a fabrication would not be large enough (over $5,000) to be capitalized and would not function as a separate piece of equipment. There are exceptions, as in lasers, where the parts that make up the finished piece of equipment are over $5,000 but these parts must meet the unable to function alone criterion.  If a piece of a fabrication can function on its own, and is over $5,000, it is a piece of equipment and must be tagged separately.  A fabrication must, when complete, be $5,000 or over in value. • Fabrication procedure • Paperwork • Coding • Life of fabrication • Ending fabrication

  8. LEASE PURCHASE • What is a lease purchase? • Leased equipment can be included on the inventory if it meets one of the following accounting rules: • 1. it transfers ownership • 2. there is a bargain purchase option • 3. the term of the lease is greater than or equal to 75% of the equipment’s economic life • 4. the present value of the payments is greater than or equal to 90% of the equipment’s fair value • If you have questions about whether your leased equipment should be included on your inventory, please contact Philomena McCaffrey at the Controller’s Office (784-4176) for further guidance. • Lease purchase procedure • Coding (60-LS)

  9. LOAN AGREEMENTS • Type of Loans: • NSHE institution to outside entity • NSHE institution to NSHE institution • NSHE department to NSHE department • Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) • Signature requirements • Distribution requirements

  10. LOAN AGREEMENTS • NSHE department to NSHE employee • Equipment Loan Agreement • Signature requirements • Distribution requirements • Keep a file of all MOU’s and Loan Agreements

  11. ANNUAL PHYSICAL INVENTORY • Why is this important? • Board of Regents’ Policy • Audit exceptions • Responsibility • Procedure • Verify each asset • Pencil in notes on report • Assets below $5,000.00 • Sensitive items (guns, vehicles, artwork)

  12. ANNUAL PHYSICAL INVENTORY • Report any changes • Room number • Responsible person • Corrections to asset record • model, serial number, description • Deletions • Surplus • Scrap/parted out • Obsolete • Must be signed by verifier and department chair
