Additional documentation to support the submission:

Data is from PeopleSoft Asset Management module. Although we know the AM module is not inclusive of all electronic equipment purchases, we are sticking with HMCMP Asset Management equipment as that is what was reported for the previous (FY 15-16) STARS assessment. The AM module export includes all capitalized and centrally-tracked (tagged) IT equipment.

Items that are missing from the PeopleSoft AM export would be any piece of equipment that is not tagged and centrally-tracked by Asset Management. Tagged items are anything capable of storing Level I or Level II data (computers, tablets, copier/printers, etc.), or anything that costs over $5,000 (like datacenter equipment, fancy classroom presentation systems, plotters..). So missing items would be items of lesser value, which could include some instructional equipment like classroom projectors, cameras, possibly some printers, televisions/monitors, the odd mobile phone, etc. Capturing all of the excluded items wouldn't be feasible, precisely because those items aren't tracked. The PS Asset Management module is HSU's central mechanism for recording data about individual electronic items, and it does capture the vast majority of campus-wide electronic asset data.
