Policy Statement
The University of Georgia is required by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and state and federal regulations to inventory and track vehicles.  Vehicles are acquired from a variety of sources.
Reason for policy
Track vehicles owned by or in the possession of UGA and to comply with state and federal guidelines.
All vehicles should be placed on the institution's inventory records regardless of source of receipt. Vehicles received as gifts should be recorded on the inventory records at the value established by the donor or at fair market value on the date the donation is made or recorded price of a similar item previously reported, or such other sources of information as may be available locally. Vehicles acquired from state Surplus or Federal Excess will be recorded at the original acquisition cost as shown on the issue invoice or at an estimated value as mentioned above; for purposes of equipment classification, the original estimated useful life of such surplus property will be used for initial classification. Vehicle Acquisition Procedures can be found in the Procurement section 4.5.
