Subject:Transferring Equipment (within MUSC)
Established Date:5/1/2001

This policy/procedure explains the steps for updating the property management system when equipment is transferred from one department to another.

General Guidelines

Equipment movement must be recorded on the University's asset management System when there is a permanent change in custody (e.g., from one department to another.)

If the equipment is temporarily loaned or relocated and the intention is to reclaim the equipment in the near future, the equipment record need not be changed. However, you should have information in your department file documenting the current location of the equipment.
