Intra and Interdepartmental Workflow User Guide for Changes to Equipment Location and Ownership (7/2013)
All tagged equipment is recorded in Banner with an assigned location and responsible budget code. The responsible budget code is the department in custody of the asset and the Budget Unit Director assumes responsibility for the asset. When equipment is moved or transferred, an electronic workflow must be utilized. This workflow replaces the paper form (Equipment Inventory Change Form) to complete an Intradepartmental (location change only) and Interdepartmental (location and responsible budget unit change) transfer. Full information about this process is contained in the user guide.
