Every two years, CEOAS must physically locate all of our capital equipment as part of OSU’s federally-mandated inventory.  Thanks to everyone's cooperation in this big job, we have successfully accounted for all of our many hundreds of pieces of equipment located in all of our buildings, ships, field sites, moorings, etc.  CEOAS’ inventory contains 1585 pieces (15% of all of OSU’s), valued at $38M (11% of OSU’s).  A special thanks go to Jason Balderston’s team, particularly Mary Hitch, for many, many hours tracking down and documenting the location of everything.
