Capital Expenditures/Non-Expendable Equipment
Non-expendable equipment is defined by UNT as personal property having a unit acquisition cost of $5,000 or more and a useful life of one year or more. Items having a unit cost of less than $5,000 should be budgeted under “Supplies.”
Budget all equipment needed to perform the proposed tasks (including estimated freight and installation). Most sponsors will not support the purchase of general-purpose equipment, such as office furniture, etc.
List each specific item in the budget, justify its need, and provide information on how the amount requested was derived, (i.e. catalog price, quote, or bid).
