Inventory of University Property

Beginning Monday, April 29, 2019, the University will begin conducting a campus wide physical inventory of all capital assets to verify their existence and location. The inventory will be conducted by HCA Asset Management LLC, and is expected to last through Friday, May 10. The list of assets will be provided to the department contact, who is not necessarily the custodian owner.

HCA employees will wear photo identification badges confirming that they are employees of the vendor. The inventory process will entail HCA using tablets and Bluetooth scanners to record asset bar code labels. They will need access to all capital assets. The HCA agents will have current listings of each department’s capitalized equipment, sorted by building and room. They will look for all listed items, correct any erroneous location codes (building/room number), identify untagged items and identify lost, stolen or missing items.

Refer to HCA Physical Inventory Schedule-2019 for the anticipated dates HCA will be in your area for the initial pass through. Please contact HCA directly by email: or phone: (479) 856-3928, if there are any conflicts.

We appreciate your cooperation during this physical inventory. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project, please contact the Manager of Distribution and Asset Services, Sonja Bowsky, at 4-1592 or
