Property Control Tags

  • Who Completes This Task: Clerk or Inventory Manager



    Items purchased with SPPS funds that require an inventory tag (also called asset tag or property control tag) are tracked through PeopleSoft. If a tag is needed, contact Kim Hurlburt in the Business Office.

    If an asset tag is peeling off, write the numbers on the item itself with a sharpie. It won’t be able to be scanned with a barcode scanner, but the number will be accurate.



    See the Equipment and Supply Quick Guide if further clarification is needed.
