  • Minor Equipment costs between $501 and $1,000 (per item), including tax and freight and having a minimum two-year life expectancy, may be considered minor equipment. Minor equipment is not tracked or reported on the college’s inventory; therefore, it is the owner’s responsibility to retain warranty and identification records in the event of damage, loss or theft. Option:  Supply funds may be used for this category, under $1,000.00 if desired.
