See Understanding the Compare Asset Repositories Process.

Fair Value

This display-only field indicates the FV of the asset as updated from the Fair Value page. The FV is used in the calculation of asset revaluation.

See Capturing and Maintaining Asset Fair Value.

Appraisal Date

This display-only field indicates the date when the current FV was updated. When the asset is added to the database, the appraisal date is the same as the acquisition date by default.

Replacement Cost

Indicates how much it would cost to replace the asset. When the asset is added to the database, the replacement cost is equal to the total base cost of the asset by default. The replacement cost can be derived by associating the asset to a cost index, such as the consumer price index (CPI) or inflation index. The association of the replacement cost index can be applied by default from the asset profile; the replacement cost is then calculated considering the base cost and the index amounts. The result is displayed here.

Last Update

If you are calculating the replacement cost using an index, the date that you performed the last update appears here. When the asset is added, this date is the accounting date.

Index Name and Subindex Name

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Acquisition Details Page. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.

Acquisition Details page

Procurement Group

Field or Control

Definition

Procurement Group ID

Displays the Procurement Group ID for the asset. A procurement group ID is an identifier that is used to associate multiple related purchased items for an asset. The Procurement Group ID can be assigned to a group of procurement transaction lines on a single purchase order or across multiple purchase orders. See Consolidating Requisition and Purchase Order Lines for Asset Components.

Seq (sequence)

Displays the Procurement Group Sequence number. Each transaction within a procurement group ID is assigned a procurement group sequence number.

Primary Unit

Displays the item that is the designated primary unit for the asset. The primary unit for the procurement group ID is assigned on the Procurement Group page. When an item is flagged as a primary item, a separate transaction is inserted into INTFC_PRE_AM in increments of the unit allocation quantity or amount and has its own sequence number.

Acquisition Detail Chartfields Page

Use the Acquisition Detail Chartfields page (ASSET_ACQ_DET_CF) to enter acquisition ChartField details for the asset.

Capitalization Information and Non Capitalization Information

Use the Capitalization Information section to capitalize assets using the book information provided by the asset profile. Enter cost information into asset books. This section only displays when adding an asset.

Use the Non Capitalization Information section to add non capitalized costs associated with an asset at book level. This group box displays only when selecting the Never Capitalize option for the Capitalize field.

Local tax legislation may require capital gains tax in relation to the disposal of assets. Noncapitalized costs may need to be included in resultant capital gain (or loss) calculations.

Field or Control

Definition

Profile ID

Identifies a profile that is set up in the Asset Profile table. The current asset automatically displays all financial and tax depreciation information defined in that profile. You must enter a profile ID for each asset that you capitalize.

Accum Depr in Current Pd (accumulated depreciation in current period)

Select and add accumulated depreciation for the asset to be booked to the current period. Otherwise, accumulated depreciation is booked to the previous period. This check box appears only if you are capitalizing an asset.

Transaction Date and Accounting Date

By default, these fields display the current date or the dates specified as user defaults. Transactions in Asset Management are entered after they have occurred. The Transaction Date field reflects the accrual date that the event took place, while the Accounting Date field reflects when it was booked or sent to accounting in the system. The transaction date must be earlier than or equal to the accounting date. For capitalized assets, note that any difference between accounting and transaction dates affects depreciation as well as posting or booking.

Transaction Code

Identifies which accounting entry template is used for the asset. The system accepts only a valid combination of asset category, transaction code, cost type, and transaction type for which accounting entry templates exist.

Capitalize

Click the Capitalize button to capitalize the asset and add cost rows for all books in the profile ID. The cost rows that appear by default equal the total of all capitalizable acquisition detail rows. You can change this amount. The Capitalize button is no longer present once all of the To be Capitalized lines are capitalized.

If one of the To be Capitalized lines is not yet capitalized, the Capitalize button is still visible and available. If you try to save the asset when there are amounts that have not yet been capitalized, you receive a warning; you can save anyway and capitalize the amount remaining to be capitalized at a later time.

Non-Capitalize

Click the Non-Capitalize button to add rows for all books in the profile ID. The cost rows that appear by default equal the total of all noncapitalizable acquisition detail rows. This button appears only when the Never Capitalize field value is selected from the Capitalize options.

If one of the non capital lines still has a status of Never Capitalize, the Non-Capitalize button is still visible and available.

Left to Capitalize

After capitalization, all capitalizable cost rows on the Asset Acquisition Detail page are marked as capitalized. Therefore, the amount left to be capitalized is 0 until you add more capitalizable cost rows to the Asset Acquisition Detail page.

Left to Non Capitalize

After capitalization, all noncapitalizable cost rows on the Asset Acquisition Detail page are marked as noncapitalized. Therefore, the amount left to be noncapitalized is 0 until you add more noncapitalizable cost rows to the Asset Acquisition Detail page.

Accum Depr(accumulated depreciation)

For capitalized assets, enter the amount of depreciation already recognized. If you are adding assets that have depreciation from prior years or prior periods, enter that amount in this field.

Note: As long as all acquisition detail lines are for the same set of ChartFields (Product, Project, Department) and for the same category and cost type, you can enter them all at once and capitalize them later by clicking the Capitalize button. However, if you enter acquisition detail lines for more than one set of ChartFields and for more than one category and cost type, you must enter and capitalize the acquisition detail lines for each set of ChartFields and for each category and cost type separately.

To enter multiple transactions and adjustments for an asset without exiting the component, access the Asset Acquisition Detail Page.

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Asset Property page. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.

Asset Property page

Property Information

This page appears when the asset type of Property is selected; however, if Lease Administration is not a selected product within Installation Options or Space Management Installed is not selected within the Asset Management Installation Options, the Property page does not appear.

Field or Control

Definition

Property ID

The property asset ID is displayed after the record is saved.

Property Class

Select the property class from the available options. PeopleSoft delivers the following hierarchy of property classes:

Site

Building

Floor

Area

Space

Property Subclass

Select the property subclass from the available user-defined options, if any.

Property Name and Description

Enter the property name and descriptions. If these are entered on the General Information page, they will follow to this page.

Hierarchy

Field or Control

Definition

Parent Property

Select the parent property ID. Only the property asset IDs within this business unit are available.

Site ID

Enter the site property ID.

Building ID

Enter the building property ID. The field is available when the site property ID has been populated. The system performs an edit to check that higher level hierarchical fields are populated.

Floor ID

Enter the floor property ID. The field is available when the site property ID and the building property ID have been populated. The system performs an edit to check that higher level hierarchical fields are populated.

Area ID

Enter the area property ID. The field is available when the site property ID, building property ID, and floor property ID have been populated. The system performs an edit to check that higher level hierarchical fields are populated.

Note: The last hierarchical definition for a property is Space. The space property ID is the same as the Property ID and is not displayed at this level.

Attributes

Field or Control

Definition

Total Area

Enter the total measurement of the area of the property.

Unit of Measure

Enter the unit of measure for the total area. If this field is unavailable for selection, the unit of measure is populated by default from the information selected when the asset was entered.

Occupancy

Select the occupancy status of the property from the available values: Occupied or Vacant.

Current Occupancy

Enter the current number of occupants for the property.

Ownership

Select the ownership status of the property from the available options: Owned or Leased.

Maximum Occupancy

Enter the maximum number of occupants for the property. This may be a legal definition.

Occupants Information

Click this link to access the Maintain Property Occupants page. On this page, you can add property occupant details such as occupant type, occupant ID, move in and move out dates, as well as asset components.

When no hierarchy is established, the default values for Unit of Measure is Feet, for Occupancy, Occupied, and for Ownership is Owned.

When a parent property ID is established, then unit of measure, occupancy, and ownership values are inherited from the parent property.

When the parent property ID changes, however, only the unit of measure is inherited from the parent. This is because ownership and occupancy values do not usually change from parent to parent asset. For example, if Property A is leased but the parent ID changes, the property does not change ownership. It is still leased. Similarly, if a parent property changes, it does not automatically change from occupied to vacant.

Note: If you have defined custom attributes on the Asset Attributes page to be associated with an asset, the asset attributes will display with a unit of measure field. You can select the appropriate attributes from your user-defined attributes for this property as needed.
