Welcome to CAM

Capital Asset Management (CAM) oversees the university’s moveable capital equipment, tracking it from the date of acquisition to the date of disposal. Federal guidelines and MSU policy require that CAM maintain and track all of the university’s capital assets, which are defined as:

  • non-expendable, tangible personal property with an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more per unit;
  • has a useful life of more than one year; and
  • has the capacity to function as a stand-alone unit without the assistance of another unit.

Managing capital assets at MSU is a large undertaking. CAM currently oversees more than 21,000 capital assets, owned by units across the university. While the responsibility for maintaining individual asset records in KFS lies with departments, CAM provides education and resources to the university community. Our mission is to support MSU departments in managing their capital assets from the date of acquisition to the date of disposal.
