Getting Organized
    Prior to starting the inventory process, key reference information should be obtained and organized. The information will serve you well in determining what room information requires updating.

  • List of rooms for you to Inventory
    • Log on to the BI Publisher server and run your department room summary report to obtain a list of rooms assigned to your department in the FAMIS space database.
  • Floor plans  
  • Movable Equipment Listing (if applicable)
    • A list of equipment with a unit purchase price of $5,000 or more should be used as a tool in the inventory process.
    • Run UV_Mov_Eqp_Comments query in Peoplesoft Financials. Save the output in excel and use to reconcile inventory results.
  • Sponsored Projects and Auxiliary/Recharge Activities
    • Run the PeopleSoft effort certification report for your department to obtain a listing of chart strings funding the department's personnel.
    • Run the labor distribution report for account 56100 to obtain a list of chart strings for personnel on wages.
  • Occupants
  • Functional Usage Categories
  • Tracking Inventory Progress
    • Copy the Department's list of rooms from FAMIS into an Excel worksheet. Combine movable equipment worksheet into the same Excel spreadsheet.
