    • Channel 2, Report Asset Issues: Create tickets to report assets from your inventory list that are determined to be: sent to surplus, not found, transferred, traded in, cannibalized, stolen, or located off campus. Other miscellaneous issues can also be communicated here via the ticket system.
    • Channel 3, Submit Inventory Certification Statement: Find instructions on submitting the Inventory Certification Statement required to complete the inventory process.
    • Additional channels are available for requesting duplicate tags and updating asset custodian information.
