2005 Florida Statutes

Section 273.02, Florida Statutes 2005

273.02  Record and inventory of certain property.--The word "property" as used in this section means equipment, fixtures, and other tangible personal property of a nonconsumable and nonexpendable nature, the value or cost of which is $1,000 or more and the normal expected life of which is 1 year or more, and hardback-covered bound books that are circulated to students or the general public, the value or cost of which is $25 or more, and hardback-covered bound books, the value or cost of which is $250 or more. Each item of property which it is practicable to identify by marking shall be marked in the manner required by the Auditor General. Each custodian shall maintain an adequate record of property in his or her custody, which record shall contain such information as shall be required by the Auditor General. Once each year, on July 1 or as soon thereafter as is practicable, and whenever there is a change of custodian, each custodian shall take an inventory of property in his or her custody. The inventory shall be compared with the property record, and all discrepancies shall be traced and reconciled. All publicly supported libraries shall be exempt from marking hardback-covered bound books, as required by this section. The catalog and inventory control records maintained by each publicly supported library shall constitute the property record of hardback-covered bound books with a value or cost of $25 or more included in each publicly supported library collection and shall serve as a perpetual inventory in lieu of an annual physical inventory. All books identified by these records as missing shall be traced and reconciled, and the library inventory shall be adjusted accordingly.
