Movable Capital Equipment


Equipment is defined as personal, tangible property. Equipment with an acquisition value of $5,000 or more and a normal life expectancy of greater than one year is defined as capital equipment.

The acquisition value of movable capital equipment includes the university’s cost of equipment and all additional costs necessary to place an asset in its intended location and condition for use.

To properly capitalize equipment correct Object Codes must be used on the purchase order.
