Inventory Home

Inventory Control coordinates the tracking and capitalization of equipment purchased by individual departments at the University of New Mexico. This web site is intended to facilitate the needs of individuals and departments by making guidelines, forms, and information regarding inventories accessible online.


Effective immediately, capital expenditures related to existing assets can be allocated to account codes 9000 (Equipment/Furniture >$5,000) or 9020 (Computer Hardware >$5,000) onlyif they meet the below criteria:

  1. Individual transactions must be greater than $500,
  2. item must be permanently and intrinsically attached to asset, and
  3. must meet one or more of the following criteria:
  • Item must extend useful life of the asset by more than 1 year
  • Item increases the asset’s capacity, functionality or operating efficiency
  • Item enables the asset to perform a function it was unable to perform originally

Individual transactions that do not meet the criteria above must be allocated to account codes 3180 (Non Capital Equipment <$5,001) or 3150 (Computer Supplies <$5,001).

*The $500 threshold is based upon 10% of State and Federal Law capitalization criteria of $5,000.00 for capital equipment.
