TO: State Agency Addressed

FROM: Dale Brunton, Director

SUBJECT: Capital Asset and Inventory Reporting

As the Division of Accounts and Reports approaches implementation of Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement 34, changes to our current procedures for reporting capital assets and inventory items (including the separate land and building listings) are required. Significant changes in capital asset reporting include:

  • Form DA-87, Annual Capital Asset Reporting, will now be used to report information regarding capital assets in your agency. This form will replace Forms DA-80, DA-80A, DA-80B, and DA-80C that were previously used in conjunction with inventory and fixed asset reporting. Instructions for using this form can be found at http://www.da.ks.gov/ar/.
  • Only equipment with a value over $5,000 and buildings with a value over $100,000 should be reported on Form DA-87.
  • Form DA-82, Certification of Inventory, will continue to be submitted by all agencies. However, if your agency does not have any fixed assets with an original cost of $5,000 or more, this form should still be completed and the appropriate box checked.
  • The entire cost of any assets acquired through a capital lease or the Master Lease Purchase Program (which also includes the Facility Conservation Improvement Program, or FCIP) should be added to the agency's capital asset records using Form DA-83 (or a similar form) at the time of the original acquisition. This includes assets originally acquired in previous fiscal years for which you are still making payments.
  • New reporting requirements for capital leases and operating leases are identified in Section IX of Form DA-87.
  • Consumable supplies (previously reported on Forms DA-80 and DA-80C) are now only reported when greater than $200,000 within the entire agency on June 30th.
  • If your agency holds title to any parcels of land or any buildings (regardless of value), we have enclosed copies of the Land Inventory and the Building and Improvements Inventory reflecting the information previously submitted by your agency. Please review these reports and make the necessary corrections to properly reflect your inventory as of June 30, 2001. All corrections should be made on Form DA-84 and DA-86 as outlined in the instructions found at http://www.da.ks.gov/ar/. Please do not make the corrections directly on the printout.

The reporting deadline for inventory/fixed asset reporting has been extended to October 31, 2001. All Certification of Fixed Asset Inspection Forms (DA-82), Capital Asset Reporting Forms (DA-87), and the Land and Building Inventory Forms (DA-84 and DA-86) should be submitted to the Division of Accounts and Reports by that date.
