Good Afternoon,

Please see the attached email from the Office of Sponsored Programs(OSP) regarding a new online Sponsored Equipment Course.   OSP with feedback from FAS and other Harvard schools developed a online Eureka course - I would like to encourage all of you to take this course and to forward it on to your co-workers who might also deal with equipment.

As a reminder, we are having an Equipment Coordinators Meeting on April 18th at 1pm in the Northwest Building Room 169.    Our Guest Speakers are Amy Gustavsson and Jessica Schmidt from OSP , so if you have any questions and/ or concerns that you would like addressed please forward them to me at kcolann at fas.harvard.edu<mailto:kcolann at fas.harvard.edu> , as soon as possible.

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Kara Colannino

Subject: [OSP_Listserve] New Online Course! Harvard's Sponsored Equipment Management Policy

Good morning!

Have you ever wondered what happens when a piece of equipment is ordered for use on a sponsored award? Have you been involved in an audit involving equipment? Have you seen the phrases "fabrications" and "GFP" and been curious about what they mean?

If so, then we recommend you take the new Eureka online course offering titled "Harvard's Sponsored Equipment Management Policy."  <http://eureka.harvard.edu/Eureka/course_template/course.cfm?CourseID=544&categoryID=28> The 30-minute course offers a primer on this important policy, including:

*         Policy Background - including definition of sponsored capital equipment, why we have a policy, and roles and responsibilities

*         Ordering Equipment on a Sponsored Award - including purchasing equipment, fabrications, GFP, and equipment transfers

*         Equipment Management - including receiving sponsored capital equipment, equipment movement and disposition, and  physical inventory

This course is highly recommended for any staff member whose work supports sponsored programs at Harvard.

Please visit the course information page on the OSP website<http://osp.fad.harvard.edu/content/online-course-harvards-sponsored-equipment-management-policy> to access the course.

**Please note that Eureka has been experiencing some intermittent outages due to increased course activity in the past week. If you are unable to login at any point, please try again later.

Amy Gustavsson, Jessica Schmidt, Amy Maltzan, and the URATT
