Section 8: Identification

Property Control is responsible for tagging all items of capital equipment, both federal and non-federal, with a university property tag. (See Section 1 for the definition of capital equipment.) Tagging of capital equipment usually occurs at the time the property is received at the central Receiving dock. The PI/Departmental Administrator is responsible for notifying Property Control and the UFPA of any untagged or incorrectly tagged items of capital equipment.

In addition, the PI/Departmental Administrator is responsible for preparing and attaching a label (tag) to items, both capital equipment and non-capital items, of government-owned property in the department. The government property label should contain the contract number, PI name, and federal ownership; for example: Army – “USA,” Navy – “USN,” Air Force – “USAF,” and NASA – “NASA.”
