Equipment Management establishes procedures for the management and control of all inventorial equipment under the care and custody of the regents.
"Equipment" are all items meeting the following criteria, and must be tracked by the university's property and financial systems:
- Are non-expendable
- Stand alone
- Have a normal useful life of one year or more
- Qualify as tangible personal property with an acquisition cost of $5000 or more (includes gifts and transfers of equipment at this value)
- Note that firearms, government property, certain "theft-sensitive" items, and vehicles registered with the DMV must be recorded and tracked, regardless of cost
We want to alert you to an active email scam involving purchase orders and email requests for product quotes that purport to originate from UC Davis, but are in fact fraudulent. While the university cannot prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent email contacts. To verify authenticity of an order, please contact Contracting Services at (530) 752-0370.
