    • Paula/Jai: Inventory Committee will make sure all equipment is inventoried and logged, for taxes, insurance, and depreciation, and in case of theft. Procurement Committee is responsible for buying stuff. We haven’t been able to depreciate our equipment for the past several years because we haven’t had a good inventory of equipment. Hasn’t been done since 2012 when the space was started. Jai has spoken with the CPA and we need to do this and it’s come up in prior years as well. Ceramics, Fab Lab, most of Metal Shop, and most of the Wood Shop were for sure inventoried prior to move in the inventory database that James L created. There’s more that needs done.
