In general there are only two types of assets; those that should be capitalized and those that should not.
so what is a fixed capitalized asset
So what is a fixed / capitalized asset?

A Capitalized or Fixed Asset is a type of asset (generally larger, more expensive) that is not easily sold in the regular course of a business's operations for cash and is generally owned for its role in contributing to the business's ability to conduct business. Furthermore, it is expected that the benefits gained from the asset will extend beyond a time span of one year. *

so what are assets that aren t capital assets
So what are assets that aren’t capital assets?

These items are considered non-capitalized assets. These items are your smaller or less valuable items that are not generally depreciated but are vital to the operation of your business.

Examples: Chairs, desk, printers, computers, file cabinets, etc.

how do i determine if an asset should be capitalized
How do I determine if an asset should be capitalized?

The Board or Governing Body of the Agency is required to outline the capitalization criteria / limit, set a threshold to deem assets expendable as supplies, as well as define the useful life of general groups of assets.

OEO has set its capitalization limit for Subrecipients at $5,000 or more unless the Agency has a lower limit established.

so what does omb have to say
So what does OMB have to say?

OMB A-133 Compliance Supplement States: (Handout 1)

“A State shall use, manage, and dispose of equipment acquired under a federal grant in accordance with state laws and procedures. Subrecipients of states who are local governments or Indian tribes shall use state laws and procedures for equipment acquired under a subgrant from a state.”

so what does omb have to say1
So what does OMB have to say?

OMB A-110 §.34 (Equipment) (Handout 2) states:

  • Equipment shall vest in the recipient.
  • Recipients shall use the equipment in the program for which it was originally required regardless of the continuation of federal funding.
  • Equipment records shall be retained.
so what does omb have to say2
So what does OMB have to say?

OMB A-110 §.34 (Equipment) (Handout 2) states:

  • Inventory of federal assets shall be taken at minimum biannually.
  • Assets shall be safeguarded against fraud and theft.
  • Assets shall be maintained properly to ensure assets remain in good condition.
slide12

But OMB only discusses assets / equipment of $5,000 or more unless the Agency has a capitalization policy less than this. What about the assets that are not capitalized? Does OEO have any guidelines for this?

so what are oeo s guidelines
See Handout 3.

Highlights:

See capitalization criteria

Non-capitalization criteria for inventory purposes.

Assets provided by OEO

3. Physical inventory of equipment shall be taken at least once every two years and reconciled to the equipment records.
