The Property Disposition Request (PDR) form is used to remove assets from inventory.  Fixed Assets Property Management - Financial Accounting & Analysis (FA&A) will complete a PDR for any asset disposed of through the Surplus Property monthly reports. Fixed Assets will also prepare PDRs for assets released by Contract sponsors that do not meet OSU’s capital threshold.  For other types of disposal, departments should complete this form, attach any necessary documentation, and forward to Fixed Assets Property Management.  See PRO 800: Equipment Disposal for additional information on the disposal of OSU equipment.
