This guide was created to assist departments with understanding the assignable system roles, navigation, and features. If you have any questions that are not answered within this guide please send your inquiry to amsfeedback@ucr.edu.

Asset Disposition Request and/or Reporting

Please note that many disposition methods require direct coordination with various departments prior to the submission of an EIMR. If a department wishes to sell or scrap University property, the Office of Logistic Services (the office responsible for the University's Surplus Operation) needs to be contacted in advance. If a department wishes to cannibalize Inventorial Equipment, then the Office of Equipment Management should be contacted directly in advance. If an item is lost, stolen, unintentionally destroyed (fire, flood, explosion, etc.), or traded-in (when authorized) then it should be reported to the Office of Equipment Management through the submission of an EIMR in the AMS (please note: the Police Department and Office of Risk Management should also be contacted depending on the situation).

Report Asset as Lost or Stolen

  1. File a Police Report and Contract Risk Management

    University policy dictates that lost and stolen assets need to be reported to the Police and Risk Management in accordance with University of California (UC) Business & Finance Bulletin BUS-81: Insurance Programs (BUS-81). Additionally, if the assets were furnished or funded by a sponsored award, the University may also need to report the loss or theft to the awarding agency.

  2. Initiate the EIMR

    Once the department has received a police report number for the reported loss or theft, the Equipment Custodian should proceed to the EIMR Screen on the asset in question. These steps are elaborated upon in the Updating Assets - Submitting an EIMR Section of this guide.

  3. Set EIMR Code to 22 or 25 (as Appropriate)

    If the asset has been lost and there are no indications of theft then the department should report the disposition under EIMR Code "22 – Lost”. If instead the loss was a result of theft, then EIMR Code “25 – Theft” should be used.

  4. Leave New Department Field Blank

    The New Department Field is only used for reporting inter-campus transfers (transfers between two departments within UCR's accountability structure).

  5. Add the Police Report Number to the Remarks

    By policy a Police Report Number is required to be provided by the department in order for Equipment Management to approve of an asset disposal through loss or theft. It is recommended that any related documentation about the incident be scanned and uploaded to the AMS asset record.

  6. Click on Process Disposition/Transfer

    Upon submission, the EIMR will be routed to the Equipment Manager (Administrator) for review, and an entry will be made to the assets Disposition / Transfers Table with the "Awaiting Approval" status icon. Please note that if the asset is later recovered by the department, the Office of Equipment Management is required to be notified so that the assets record can be reactivated.

Report Asset as Destroyed (Non-Cannibalization)

  1. Initiate the EIMR

    No prior steps are required to initiate an EIMR in instances where property is destroyed unintentionally through events such as fires, floods, or explosions, however, the loss of property should also be reported to the Office of Risk Management as appropriate. Please note non-functional assets that could be repaired and have a residual value should not be reported as destroyed. These items should remain on the inventory until their actual disposition. Please proceed to the EIMR Screen on the asset in question, the steps to do so are elaborated upon in the Updating Assets - Submitting an EIMR Section of this guide.

  2. Set EIMR Code to 23

    Regardless of the type of damage that caused the asset to be destroyed, all such dispositions should be requested under EIMR Code "23 – Destroyed”.

It is also recommended that any related documentation about the incident be scanned and uploaded to the AMS asset record as well.

  5. Click on Process Disposition/Transfer

    Upon submission, the EIMR will be routed to the Equipment Manager (Administrator) for review and an entry will be made to the assets Disposition / Transfers Table with the "Awaiting Approval" status icon.

Request Asset "Cannibalization"

  1. Contact Equipment Management Directly

    University policy dictates that Equipment Management be consulted with directly prior to any Inventorial Equipment cannibalization (i.e. disassembly and re-purposing). If the University has title to the asset, the custodial Department Head and Equipment Manager both agree that a cannibalization is appropriate, then this process can be initiated. If however the University does not have title to the asset, the University will not be able to cannibalize it without written approval from the Government Property Administrator of the awarding agency.

  2. Initiate the EIMR

    Once the asset has been cleared for cannibalization, the Equipment Custodian should proceed to the EIMR Screen on the asset in question. These steps are elaborated upon in the Updating Assets - Submitting an EIMR Section of this guide.

  3. Set EIMR Code to 23

    Cannibalization, like other methods of destruction, are also recorded to EIMR Code "23 – Destroyed”.

If the individual submitting the request also has the Equipment Custodian role within the receiving department, it will be approved by the Office of Equipment Management without any further confirmation.

Report Transfer of Asset to the Surplus Operation

  1. Coordinate the Transfer of with the Office of Distribution Services

    The Surplus Operation (also known as the Excess Property Operation) has been run by the Office of Distribution Services (formally titled either the Office of Logistic Services or Storehouse) for several years.

Additional information is also available at the Surplus Operations website at: http://matmgmt.ucr.edu/storehouse/surplus.html.

    This field is not mandated to be completed however it is highly recommended that if this is a surplus transfer that has already taken place previous that this field be used to provide any details on the specific date and/or the facilities work order number (if applicable) that were associated with the transfer. This information will assist the Office of Equipment Management and the Office of Distribution Services with processing the transfer of the assets custodial assignment.

  6. Click on Process Disposition/Transfer

    Upon submission the EIMR will be routed to the Equipment Manager (Administrator) for review and an entry will be made to the assets Disposition / Transfers Table with the "Awaiting Approval" status icon.
