    High-Risk Assets

    Department identifies need and purchases High-Risk Asset using their Procurement Card.

    1. When received, the Equipment Coordinator must tag the High-Risk Asset with a Red Tag.
    2. The Equipment Coordinator should log the new High-Risk Asset on their departmental High-Risk Asset Log.


    Property that is being donated to the campus must be approved by the Vice President for Administration and Finance in accordance with the college’s Acceptance of Gifts in Kind Policy (See Appendix). Donated property must be tagged and reported to the PCC, for inclusion in RAMI if the fair market value at the time of donation is $5,000 or more.

    The department receiving the donation/gift is to coordinate with the PCC as soon as possible. The PCC needs specific information from the department to create a P101 form. This form has the information which the PCC forwards to Accounts Payable to be entered into RAMI as another equipment item on inventory


    Fabricated property must be tagged and reported to the PCC for inclusion in RAMI if valued at $5,000 or more.
