Lost/Stolen Equipment

  • Lost Equipment - Remove equipment from your department's records if you are unable to locate it after applying a good faith effort. This usually occurs during a physical inventory.  If the item is later found, Equipment Inventory can re-activate the item in the database.  The Property Activity Request - Form 1024 should be used to report an item as lost.

Note:  If EIO notices that a department has reported an unusually large amount of equipment as lost, Internal Audit will be notified. 

  • Stolen Equipment - Remove equipment from your department's records if it was taken from the University without permission.  It is also important that you file a police report. The Property Activity Request - Form 1024 should be used to report an item as stolen.  This form should not be approved by the stolen equipment's custodian.
