Approvals for Capital Equipment Asset Disposal Form

The new version of the Capital Equipment Disposal Form (UM 1393) revised 1/27/09, requires the RRC Manager approval. The prior version required the Dept. Head or Admin. Officer. Please continue to have your Chair, or Administrator approve before submitting to CLA Fiscal Administration, 208 Johnston Hall, for RRC approval.

The Dept. approval may be signed on the last line of the box titled - DEPARTMENTAL REASON FOR REQUEST.

This path only applies to non-computer assets, if the disposal involves computer equipment, you must work with CLA OIT to make sure it is removed from their Records.
