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.
When submitting a Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) that includes Inclusion Enrollment data, grantees may encounter a new error message. The new error message reads:
