Guide to using AIMS for Inventory Tracking and Surplus
This application is where you will track, report, and surplus equipment. The Asset
Inventory Management System (AIMS) combines the following areas into one integrated
Property Inventory – Tracking and reporting (including depreciation) of all University owned capital equipment. Annual physical inventories of all University owned capital equipment.
Departments – AIMS provides departmental users with the capability to create and maintain records for their non-capital assets and to maintain their own information for capital assets. Non-capital assets are equipment where the unit cost is less than the capitalization threshold of $2, 500.
Surplus – The state sanctioned means of disposing of items (capital and non-capital) that are no longer needed. AIMS provides for a process for identifying items to surplus, approval by management of items to be disposed, items picked up and moved to the Surplus Warehouse, and items auctioned to the public.
