All property, equipment, and supplies acquired by Oregon State University remain the responsibility of the University until disposed of in an authorized manner.

The Property Management Policy and Procedure Manual (PRO) provides information necessary for managing the capital assets of Oregon State University from acquisition to disposal.

All units are required to place one or more responsible persons in charge of all equipment whether capitalized or minor. This applies to the main campus in Corvallis, the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) in Newport, all Agriculture Experiment Stations (AES), all Extension Offices, the OSU portion of the Collaborative Life Sciences Building in Portland, OSU Cascades in Bend, and all other OSU installations.

In the event of an inconsistency or conflict, applicable law and the Oregon State University Board of Trustees’ policies supersede University policies and University policies supersede college, department, or lower unit bylaws, policies, or guidelines.

The University reserves the right to add, amend, or revoke any of the contained rules, policies, regulations, and instructions or incorporate additional ones, with or without notice, as circumstances or the good of the University community may require.
