Furniture and other equipment valued below the capitalization threshold of $5,000 is not barcoded or entered into the equipment database, and therefore is not subject to inventory procedures. Nevertheless, these items are State property and cannot be sold or donated without prior approval from the State. Departments that wish to transfer any such property to non-university entities must contact the Financial Reporting Office.
