Fayetteville Policies and Procedures #313.2


Inventory/Equipment Capitalization Thresholds:

The University of Arkansas uses capitalization thresholds to determine which equipment items are included in University inventories and what methods must be used for tracking. Effective July 1, 2012, the University has adopted equipment capitalization thresholds in accordance with levels established by the State of Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration and dated July 1, 2011. In addition, the University has determined that certain items such as cell phones, tablets and weapons shall be tracked regardless of cost.


Definitions and Threshold Levels

  • Capitalized Equipment. The capitalization threshold for Capitalized Equipment is $5,000.00. In addition to having a first cost or initial value of at least $5,000, in order to be considered Capitalized Equipment, each capitalized item must have an estimated useful life of greater than one year, an identity that does not change with use, and a nature that makes formal accountability practical.
  • Low Value Equipment. All equipment with a useful life in excess of one year and an initial value of at least $2,500 but not more than $4,999.99, which is classified as Low Value Equipment.
  • Low Value-High Risk Equipment. Assets valued from $500 to $2,499.99 that are easily susceptible to loss or theft, including, but not limited to, computers, monitors, laptop computers, tablets (e.g. iPad, Kindle Fire, etc.), guns, camera equipment, video equipment, video gaming equipment, printers, scanners, tools, cell phones, handheld radios, binoculars, are classified as Low Value-High Risk Equipment.

Fayetteville Policies and Procedures #313.3


University Equipment

The University is responsible for safeguarding all of its equipment. Custody and proper use of equipment is the responsibility of the various colleges and departments where the property is assigned. University employees have stewardship responsibilities for University property assigned to the employee. Employees are required to use good judgment in the use of all university equipment.

For the purpose of this policy, equipment is defined as all capital equipment (cost equal to or greater than $5,000.00 and useful life greater than one (1) year), Low Value Equipment, Low Value-High Risk Equipment (see Fayetteville Policy and Procedure 313.2 for definitions), furniture, library holdings, livestock, inventory for resale and any item that may be used or sold.

University equipment may only be used in the conduct of official University business. University equipment may not be rented or loaned to any person, group or organization for personal use.

Policy covers who is responsible for each aspect of the inventory process; the scheduling and rescheduling of the physical inventory; barcode scanning of the inventory; process for non-scanned equipment; due process for follow-up on missing and improperly disposed equipment; procedures for reporting stolen equipment; and procedures for obtaining permission to discard or cannibalize equipment
