Controller's Office

Property Control

Cleveland State University depends on a wide variety of equipment to support its mission of providing a quality education for students. Currently, the movable equipment (i.e., non-fixed items value at $5,000 or greater) totaled 5,714 items with a value of over 51 million dollars. The task of recording and accounting for this property is the responsibility or the Property Control Department. This task, however, requires the on-going cooperation of all University departments to ensure accuracy.

Property Control's primary mission is to provide a systematic accounting of all movable equipment at the University. This is necessary to:

  • Ensure compliance with University policies and federal and state regulations.
  • Identify and monitor all major acquisition and provide a property database for management purposes.
  • Provide a control while safeguarding the assets of the University.

Disposal of Obsolete Property: The University encourages the disposal of worn-out or obsolete equipment. Whenever possible, Property Control tries to sell by competitive bid, any items of value. Receipts of these sales are deposited in the University's general fund account.
