Equipment & inventory
Request, test, and track equipment such as mobile devices and capital assets
Email us for assistance with equipment or its transport.
Indiana University defines capital assets as equipment that has:
- Acquisition value of at least $5,000
- Useful life expectancy of one year or greater
All capital assets must be tagged with a yellow IU inventory tag upon receipt.
When a capital asset is moved, sold, traded, repurposed, or discarded, the asset must be updated within the timeframe required by University Policy. In such cases, please contact the UITS Capital Asset Supervisor immediately via Phone: (812) 855-2881 or E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need assistance with or have questions regarding a capital asset, please contact email@example.com.
Capital Asset equipment loans
Capital Assets taken off IU premises for longer than 30 days require initiation of an equipment loan document prior to their relocation off campus. To initiate this loan document please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The UITS Capital Asset team will then assist you with processing the proper equipment loan documentation required by the Off-Premise Capital Equipment Control policy.
Please direct any questions regarding this notification to email@example.com.
IT testing of mobile devices
Some staff members must use mobile devices for business purposes. In those cases, employees should continually test mobile devices to ensure fully functioning, safe, and secure integration with UITS technology.
When testing these devices, UITS staff are exempt from the IU mobile devices and Internet access policy I-480. Instead, staff can follow the following procedure for acquiring testing devices:
- Submit proposal to the Associate Vice President (AVP) of the business unit and include:
- Test purpose
- Test duration
- Contact person for test device(s)
Note: Do not use a procurement card to purchase equipment or set up service without advance approval from the UITS Finance Office.
If the test has finished, the device can be transferred to a staff member for business use. This individual can apply for supplemental pay to cover service use.
All exceptions to policy must be approved by the Vice President of Information Technology. The Finance Office also must conduct an annual review of the business purposes and associated costs for test devices.
