What is Capital Equipment?
Capital Equipment is defined by the university in Policy & Procedure Manual (PPM) 350-50 as an item that is:
- Non-expendable (having a normal life expectancy of one year or more).
- Tangible (can be appraised for value).
- Free standing (complete in itself, does not lose its identity when affixed to or installed in other property).
- Has an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more.
