To establish a policy and procedure for the effective control of Information Technology assets and other small and attractive assets.
- SMALL AND ATTRACTIVE ASSETS - Assets that do not meet the state's capitalization policy (unit cost less than $5,000) but that an agency considers particularly vulnerable to loss, thus subject to special property control.
- Small and attractive assets will be entered in the local inventory system by the agency’s designated Inventory Officer.
- All assets are barcoded with asset tag numbers and entered into the Asset Tracking System (ATS). Owners are assigned to each item(s) and ultimately responsible for the safeguarding of the items. IT items include those listed under the below Class codes 7012-7013, 7018 and 7034-7039
