Capital equipment (> $5,000) cannot be purchased using a Service Center internal order. It is not appropriate to charge current users with costs associated with future periods. This limits the options for acquiring new or replacement capital equipment.
The Vice President for Research has limited funds available to replace existing capital equipment. Requests for equipment loans, leases and replacement funds are considered on a case-by-case basis.
To request equipment replacement funds, forward a request form to the Office of the Vice President for Research and copy John Donahue in the Office of Cost Analysis.
