(see revision history)
It is the policy of the California State University (CSU) to record all of its legal based fixed asset activity into a single fund regardless of the funding type (Governmental, Proprietary, or Fiduciary). Campuses must prepare written procedures that implement this policy.
All campus legal basis fixed asset accounting entries will be recorded in and reported from State Controller Office (SCO) fund 0997, CSU fund 501 – General Fixed Assets Memo Fund. Campuses are not required to record by separate funding type.
Any external reporting that requires an alternative display of the capital assets information will be accommodated by the Chancellor’s Office Systemwide Reporting group. Supporting schedules will be retained on file per the CSU Records Retention policy to support reconciliation back to the campus’ book of records.
