As a state agency, Lamar State College Port Arthur is required by state statute to be accountable and responsible for all controlled and capital equipment possessed by the agency. The State Comptroller’s Office requires that each item be accounted for. Therefore, it is imperative that employees be aware of their responsibilities.

  • Property may be removed from the campus only when necessary to conduct official College business.

  • Employees could be held personally liable for lost or stolen equipment so please be conscientious about safeguarding equipment assigned to you. It is suggested that departments utilize LSCPA’s online Property Inventory Control web application to document property leaving the office or campus.

  • All missing or stolen property should be reported to the campus Security department as soon as the loss is discovered. The campus Security department should prepare a Missing or Stolen Property Report and initiate a request for a Port Arthur Police report to document the incident.

  • The State Comptroller requires that all equipment valued at greater than $5,000 be tagged with an inventory tag.

Please utilize the Property Inventory Control System to make changes to the location or responsible person for tagged equipment.
