Equipment Controls and Compliance with Reporting Requirements

We examined the controls over equipment inventories at five selected SUNY campuses. We found that the equipment inventory controls at the campuses were generally adequate, to the extent we were able to account for nearly all of the equipment items we selected for verification. These campuses should be acknowledged for these results. However, we also identified the need for improvements in certain controls. For example, physical inventories were not always performed annually or by staff who were sufficiently independent of the items being inventoried.
