Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS)

Initial Inventory

Reference Number: MTAS-632
Reviewed Date: 12/21/2021

The next step in establishing the CAAS is taking a physical inventory and preparing the initial database. Make every effort to obtain a complete record of all capital assets owned by the city. The chief administrative officer should inform all department heads and agencies that capital asset controls have been established and announce the person who is responsible for them. Each department should designate a person to assist in taking inventory for that department. The city’s size should determine if a formal meeting of department heads is required.
