New capital equipment software launched
Efforts to improve capital equipment asset management on campus are on track. A new asset management module was launched on Dec. 5 and the legacy system known as CEIMS (Capital Equipment Information Management System) has been retired. New policy supporting capital equipment management will go into effect in January 2017. Department Property Administrators (DPAs) will receive training on new policy and procedures in January and February. The next phase of the project will focus on developing a DPA interface and workflows to support this activity. This work is part of the Financial Internal Controls initiative.
