Hello Department Property Administrators and Financial Staff,
We’re happy to share the news there is a new search tool available in WISER for viewing your capital equipment assets in almost real-time (updated nightly). This search tool has been over 2 years in the making, and was highly requested from the Departmental Property Administrators (DPAs) community.
The “Find Capital Equipment Assets” search is intended for DPA and financial staff usage. This allows departments to create their own ad hoc reporting on their capital equipment. Searches can be run to find all capital equipment for a particular department, a specific PI, an award/project used to purchase, a physical location, or a combination of other search criteria.
This search tool is intended to offer general capital equipment information to our internal campus community. Please continue to direct any external requests for capital reporting, audit documentation, and transfer negotiations to the Division of Business Services Property Control team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eventually, we plan for this search tool to replace our current “Capital Equipment Reports by Division” Box report. We will stop providing those reports in Box at the end of this fiscal year (June 30, 2022).
Please note: if you are a DPA but do not have access to WISER, please fill out the Wiser Access Authorization Form and submit it through your department/division. Keep running Box reports in the meantime through the end of the Fiscal Year.
Please see the “WISER Find Capital Equipment Assets” help sheet for a guide to using the search tool. Feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions that aren’t covered in the attachment.
