9. OVC Asset Management There is currently a college level initiative under way working to better understand the major fixed assets owned and operated by OVC. The primary target for this project is equipment that was purchased at a price greater than $5,000 (though there are other criteria). 

The ultimate product will be a dynamic list of the College's assets, complete with all pertinent information (including service history). This valuable data resource (managed by OVC SAS) will be available, as appropriate, at any level of the organization. The information could be used in a variety of ways; optimizing resource utilization at a department level, tracking equipment expenses by research grant, aiding in buy or replace decisions, and much more. It will also position OVC as a campus leader in this regard. 

A project team will be touring the department to record information and affix barcodes to each piece of equipment. This team will require local guides to properly access and inspect each of our facilities that contain assets of this type. We have provided them a list of names and they will contact you directly to schedule a visit. Please accommodate them in this endeavor; they will abide by the rules of your space and won't need much of your time. 

This work will begin immediately and continue over the summer months. Please respond to an inquiry from any member of the project team: 

  • Bohan Jiang 
  • Andrew Ford 
  • Justin Sheba 

Any questions about the project itself can be directed at Scott Moccia (smoccia@uoguelph.ca ext. 54045). 

Thanks, Carolyn and Sharita
