HCM Non-capital Tool Presentation

Are you interested in a tool that can track non-capital items? A new equipment tracking tool within the HCM system can help departments track non-capital items, such as laptops, being used in remote offices and labs. In this session, we will walk you through this straightforward, flexible tool that links items to individual employees.

Note: The use of this tool is not required. While CCO does not have a policy requiring departments to track non-capital items, we ask that you are good stewards of campus resources. Each department can choose what items they want to track based upon the financial and information risk. 


Helpful Tips to Reduce Cost Transfers

We will present a brief overview of cost transfers, discuss red flags in audits and illustrate some tips to reduce the number of cost transfers.


Indirect Cost (F&A)

If you're involved in research in any capacity at the university, we welcome you to our newest training about indirect costs—also known as facilities and administration (F&A) costs. The development and negotiation of the F&A cost rate is a complex process that only happens every 4-5 years. In this training, we will explain the purpose of the F&A cost rate and provide an overview of how the rate is calculated using base-year expenses.

In our current base year, FY22, we look forward to working with units (like yours!) across the campus to gather essential data about research, including spaces, equipment depreciation and library use. Learn how you can help strengthen CU Boulder's ability to negotiate an F&A rate that allows us to better support research at CU Boulder.
