If there is no inventory control tag on the equipment, please indicate this in the Inventory Number field.

Item Description

Field two is the Item Description for the equipment. It is important to put at least the manufacturer and the model information in this space so the equipment is properly identified.

Individual Requesting Authorization

Fields nine through thirteen are information about the Individual Requesting Authorization.  This includes the name of the individual, the department name, the current position, and the position short title and number. All of these Fields must be completely filled out so Property Control can properly assign the equipment. You department business office can assist with this information if necessary.

Authorized Signatures
