    Refer to this toolkit when purchasing and researching assets in the myUFL system. Purchasing equipment, software, books and furniture for UF Departments requires additional information entry into myUFL because many of these items qualify as assets owned by the University. Assets become decaled and asset tracking at UF is done using hand-held scanners that read bar codes from UF Property decals.

    Department Accountable Officers may use the simulations in this module to research assets in myUFL to verify information in their department’s inventory.

    You may notice the navigation in myUFL is different than what is shown in these training resources.  Rest assured, these changes are primarily look and feel differences. All policies and procedures discussed in these materials are accurate and up to date. Training materials will be updated to reflect the new look and menu of myUFL.
