Category E Projects: Equipment

Certain items can be confused as to whether they are considered equipment or supplies. 2 Code of Federal Regulations describes both in detail, while 2 Code of Federal Regulations Part 200.94 defines supplies, "Supplies means all tangible personal property other than those described in 200.33 Equipment. A computing device is a supply if the acquisition cost is less than the lesser of the capitalization level established by the non-Federal entity for financial statement purposes or $5,000, regardless of the length of its useful life."

The following is an example of how an item is deemed an equipment item:

A disaster occurs, and the State has a capitalization level of $4,250.00. The Applicant has a capitalization level of $3,000.00. The damaged item has a cost of $3,250.00. The damage item is deemed an equipment item instead of a supply item, despite the value of the item being less than the $5,000.00 Federal definition.
