Technologies in Education maintains a database that tracks all technology-related equipment that falls under the University of Alberta’s Equipment and Furnishings Asset Management Policy. The policy states that equipment and furnishings purchased from university funds (includes both unrestricted funds, e.g. operating; and restricted funds, e.g. research) are the property of the University unless otherwise stated by sponsor or donor terms and conditions. As a result, Technologies in Education is required to tag and track equipment assets that are movable equipment with an acquisition value of $500 or greater, or desirable equipment with an acquisition value less than $500 defined as necessary to tag and track.
Any equipment that is to be taken off campus requires an Off Campus Equipment form for insurance purposes.
