Capital assets may be sold, lost, junked or traded for new assets. Regardless of the manner of disposition or the amount of proceeds, remove the asset from the CAAS at its recorded value.

The capital asset card should show clearly the method of disposal and, if sold, the amount of money received.

In order to furnish necessary information on fixed asset changes, those responsible should fill out a form such as the one found later in this section, and transmit it immediately to the property officer.
