Subject: Budgeting Equipment on Sponsored Projects – Effective May 1, 2015   

The University defines capital equipment as items with a unit value of $5000 or more and having a useful life of over one year, which is consistent with Federal and State equipment definitions and regulations.  However, the practice of UIC has been to categorize anything costing $500 or more as equipment for the purpose of proposal budgets to external agencies.
