A comprehensive equipment inventory was conducted between January and August each year using the guidelines outlined above. At the departments request a copy of this inventory is provided to each designated department-level property control liaison.
- Each new departmental property designee is trained to track movement of new and used equipment within their department and to report changes to the Property Control Office
- Annually the Property Control Office contacts each department designee and schedules an annual inventory update. Items not found or accounted for from the previous annual audit are investigated to determine their disposition.
- Following the departmental inventory update, the Property Control Office conducts an audit of 5-10% of department equipment to ensure integrity of the data.
