Proposed Process Update

Equipment Inventory Office

March 22, 2012


General definition and criteria
General Definition and Criteria

  • Equipment Transfer – Researcher is moving his research to another institution (non-profit research facility in the US) and wants to take equipment with him.

  • When is this okay?

    • It depends on the type of funds used to purchase it.

    • This is why EIO has to get involved in the approval process.


Most common transfers
Most Common Transfers

  • 89% of calendar year 2010 and 2011 transfers were from one of the three most common funding scenarios below:

    • Open award funds (13%)

    • Closed award funds (37%)

    • State funds (39%)

  • How do we determine funding?

    • Federal: Revenue source code 01-60

    • State: Revenue source code 00, 61-99 (includes start up funds and anything not federal/agency)

Open award funds
Open Award Funds

  • Researcher AND research moving to another institution. Researcher wants to take equipment funded by that open award.


Open award funds current proposed process

    • Verifies the item is titled to the University

    • Requests written verification that the open award will leave the UW from OSP & GCA

  • EIO receives written verification that the open award will leave the UW from OSP & GCA

  • EIO approves the item to leave the UW and sends required paperwork to department

  • If the department has no need for the equipment, there are two options:

    • Sell or give the item internally to another UW department (using a state to state budget sale - with no federal funds being used).

    • Send it to Surplus Property for regular surplus disposal (researcher would still have the option to purchase the item through Surplus Property) (note: computing equipment would be wiped prior to sale)

  • If yes, Surplus Property invoices the other institution
