Revise Asset Master(s) Lesson

Asset Master data can be updated as changes to the Fixed Asset occur.  Each fixed asset master must be update individually; however, this process allows you to select multiple records at one time.

    Step 12
  13. If a Serial Number exists, enter the Serial Number/VIN.  It is very important to complete this information.  The system does not allow duplicate Serial Numbers.  Entering this information prevents duplicate Fixed Assets (including Equipment Masters created in Capital Asset Management (CAMS)).


    NOTE: NEVER add a prefix to the Serial Number.


    It is possible for two fixed assets to have the same Serial Number.  Duplicate Serial Numbers may occur for any one of the following reasons:


    o Manufacturer uses the same Serial Number for multiple items


    o Two Manufacturers use the same Serial Number


    o Item is already included  as a Fixed Asset within another Agency.  (Example: Communication Equipment belonging to OCIO is added as a fixed asset by the agency using the equipment.)


    o Item was processed through Surplus Property as a Disposal (destruction, adjustment, sale) and is being added back as a new Fixed Asset record.


    If you encounter Error: "Duplicate Item/Unit/Serial Number" when creating a new FA record or revising an existing record, additional research should be conducted to verify the record is not a duplicate.  This may require contact with another agency, review of disposed assets within your Fixed Assets, communication with Surplus Property, etc.


    If you determine through analysis there will not be a duplicate Fixed Asset record, proceed by entering the actual Serial Number followed by a dash (-) and your two digit agency number.
