A fabricated equipment item is a unique item which cannot be acquired off-the-shelf, has a useful life of more than one year, and is made of material and components which cumulatively cost $5,000 or greater (excluding labor costs). Allowable costs for fabricated equipment items include materials and non-salary services, such as shop charges, vendor labor, shipping, installation, and operating software, that directly make up a fabricated equipment item.
The University’s Fabricated Equipment Policy applies to federally funded (including federal prime subawards received by the University through another entity) sponsored projects or programs and provides the following information:
