POLICY OBJECTIVE

It is the policy of the California State University (CSU) to record all its fixed asset activity in State Controller Office (SCO) fund 0997, CSU fund 501 – General Fixed Assets Memo Fund, regardless of the funding type (Governmental, Proprietary, or Fiduciary).


POLICY STATEMENT

Legal basis fixed asset accounting entries are recorded in and reported from SCO fund 0997 and CSU fund 501. Formal adoption of this policy will continue this practice, minimizing any disruption to the campus operations and avoid expenses related to changing any existing software modifications that support this practice.

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.
