Federal Government Property Guide


The University of New Mexico (UNM) Government Property Management Guide is designed to establish the procedures for the acquisition, management, control and disposition of property furnished by or purchased for the Federal Government and in control of UNM in support of on-going government contracts.  Additional reporting and management requirements may be imposed by Government Agencies or individual grants or contracts. Standards applicable to Facilities and Real Property are not covered in this guide.

The two basic functions of this procedures guide are:

  • The emphasis on the need for property accountability and compliance with Federal guidelines.

  • The establishment of a property audit trail from the establishment of the property as a requirement to the Government contract, through procurement, distribution, storage, inventory, marking, maintenance, calibration, reporting, and final disposition.
