Things to remember!

A department:

  • Cannot give/sell the item to faculty/staff. CU holds auctions to provide equal opportunity to purchase an item.
  • Cannot give/sell directly to a company/person/charity.(see above)
  • Cannot allow a transferring PI to take an item without permission from CU and acceptance of the item from the receiving institution.Legally, CU transfers the item to the receiving institution not the PI.

Purchasing/Receiving Capital Equipment

Tracking/Maintenance of Tagged Equipment

  • Cannibalization is when a dept disassembles a tag and uses the pieces for other uses.

  • Impaired: Equipment no longer used for intended purpose due to reduced functionality.
