Protection Against Loss of University Property
Inventory Control is responsible for cooperating and coordinating with the Department of Public Safety with respect to the ways and means of obtaining protection against loss of University property. This does not relieve the responsible administrator of responsibility for protecting and safeguarding all property assigned to his/her custody.
Whenever the loss or theft of equipment is discovered, it must be immediately reported to the Public Safety office. Public Safety personnel will investigate the circumstances of the loss and will forward a copy of the Report of Investigation to the Inventory Control office. Action will be taken to remove the item from the Master Property and Inventory File on the basis of the Public Safety report. Should the item be recovered and returned to the original custodian, the Public Safety office notifies the Inventory Control office of the recovery of the item and the master record will be restored at that time.
