2018 Property Validation Process to Start Monday, Jan. 8

The 2018 Property Validation period will run from Monday, Jan. 8 - Feb. 28.  Property Custodians will need to fill in all blank data fields in their Property Validation Inventory List, as well as correct any erroneous data in the other fields.  It is especially important to make sure the location is correct; information in this field is frequently out of date.

This year during February and March, all divisions are being asked to survey all of their assigned spaces to look for items not tagged or marked DOE/JLab Property. Custodians will need to provide a list of any unmarked/untagged items to Property Management staff. Property Management will identify what items need to be added to the Property Management Database and labeled with a bar-code tag, as well as identify items that need to be marked as government property. Property Management will provide the labels; custodians will be able to get the labels from the Property office, or Property staff can go to a specific area and attach labels to items.

The Property Inventory, which follows the validation, will run from March 12 - May 25.  To check for accuracy, Property Management staff will inventory 20 percent of the validated items.

This year’s validation and inventory are in preparation for the 2018 DOE certification of Jefferson Lab’s Property Management System, which will take place in July.
