FAMIS Object Codes Help
Specific object codes were created help state agencies track capital and non-capital equipment purchases. More information can be obtained by contacting Marcie Whisenhunt at extension 3112.
Non-consumable property that is owned or received by A&M-Texarkana. The three areas of concern are capitalized, controlled and non-controlled.
Asset value must be recorded at the actual cost of the asset plus all costs required when placing the asset into service, such as freight and other related professional expenditures incurred in the purchase of the item.
Remember "UNIT COST" when determining your object code!!
Object codes specified for equipment with a unit cost of $ 5,000 or more with a useful life of at least one-year must be recorded as a capital asset in FFX.
