In the past, the Equipment Screening Form was used for “ALL” purchases or lease requests with a cost of $5,000 or more.
According to the Office of Management and Budget Uniform Guidance 2 CFR Part 200, only purchases or lease purchases using “Federal Funds” with a cost of $5,000 or more must have the Equipment Screening Form attached to the college requisition. Therefore, an Equipment Screening Form is not required for any other source of funds.
The Equipment Screening Form is now located on our website under Forms & Work Orders. The table for screening levels necessary for specific equipment purchases or lease requests can be found in Section 4.30 page 20 of the University’s Moveable Equipment Inventory and Space Management System User Manual. The screening procedure can be found in Section 5.11 on pages 236.
