Property and Equipment


For supplies acquired under an award, the title to the supplies vests in you as the recipient upon acquisition. For supplies acquired under a subaward, the title vests in the subrecipient upon acquisition.

  • You or your subrecipient must compensate the awarding agency for its share of residual inventory of unused supplies if both of the following apply:
  • The residual inventory of unused supplies exceeds $5,000 in total aggregate fair market value upon termination or completion of the funding support.
  • The supplies are not needed for any other federally sponsored programs or projects.
  • Compute the compensation amount in the same manner as for nonexpendable personal property or equipment.
