Commingling GFE and University Equipment

GFE should not be commingled with university equipment unless commingling is consistent with the best use of that equipment in carrying out the terms of the contract. Approval must be obtained from the administrative contracting officer before commingling.


Controlling GFE Equipment

GFE needs to be controlled with extreme care. Accurate records must be maintained on its use, location, and maintenance. The government will schedule periodic audits of GFE whenever desired or whenever needed to fulfill contract requirements.

The sponsored property coordinator:
