This guide is intended to help you with questions you may have regarding capital equipment. If you have additional questions, please contact Leslie Simone at 401-444-8696.
If you would like a print out of all equipment listed under your name as Principal Investigator please contact Leslie Simone at 444-8696 or email LVarone@lifespan.org.
Once the charge has hit your responsibility center, which usually is within a month or two of ordering the piece of equipment, Research Administration will send you a copy of the database record along with the silver identification tag number to be affixed to the piece of equipment. It is your responsibility to make sure that the tag number assigned matches the purchase order number in which it was purchased from. Research Administration at that time may require additional information (e.g., serial numbers, locations, contact name, etc.).
If the silver tag at any time falls off a piece of equipment, please contact Jill Pianka at 444-5196. She will issue another tag number to you and changes will be noted in the equipment database.
We are required to re-inventory federal capital equipment within 2 years from the last inventory date. Research Administration will send you a copy of the database record along with a re-inventory form which will need to be completed and returned ASAP to Research Administration.
Fill out the equipment disposal form and forward to research administration, Coro West 1.300. If the piece of equipment is computer related you will need to contact Information Services. Contact Facilities Management for disposal of all other equipment.
If you have a piece of equipment that was stolen, contact the security department and also report it to either Leslie Simone at 444-8696 or Jill Pianka at 444-5196.
If you are transferring to another institution and considering taking any or all of the equipment listed under your name you need to request this in writing. Contact your Research Administrator.
