SUBJECT: University Equipment Care and Custody Presentations
UCSD is ranked third in the nation for receipt of Federal research dollars. While this distinction carries significant recognition, conversely it carries an equally significant responsibility to conduct the business associated with the management of property in an exemplary manner. In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR - DFAR), each recipient of federal funds shall undergo an audit at least once every two years.
As a result of a finding in our audit in May 1998, UCSD was directed by the federal auditors to present a series of familiarization sessions to Departmental Business Officers, MSO's and Property Administrators.
The presentation will last approximately 1  hrs and will address topics such as:
The new definition of Equipment
Principal parties involved
Post award requirements Grants vs. Contracts
Identification
Management and Control
Care and Custody
Disposal
In an attempt to reach as many employees as possible, three sessions have been scheduled and will be held at locations throughout the Main Campus, School of Medicine and SIO.
Garren Auditorium SOM	June 10, 1999	9:00 - 10:30 A.M.
Price Center Gallery B	June 14, 1999	9:00 - 10:30 A.M.
Hubbs Hall Conf. Room - SIO	June 16, 1999	9:00 - 10:30 A.M.
All persons responsible in any manner for the care and custody of
capitalized equipment in their organization are requested to attend one of these sessions. We look forward to providing the attendees to these presentations with information that will help them manage the care and custody of University property.
