Capitalization of InfrastructuresFIN-ACC-I-210
All Indiana University units and employees.
Improvements on land that have a life of their own exclusive of the land or building(s) on that land should be capitalized in this category. The cost of the project must be greater than $75,000 for it to be capitalized.
Reason for Policy
To define expenditures which will be classified as capital infrastructures.
In order for an item to be secured as a capital infrastructure, the correct object code should be utilized on the Purchase Order and disbursement documents.
All capitalized building projects should be processed through a construction account or renewal and replacement account and should not be recorded in an operating account. Any federal funds used should be allocated to the correct disbursement object code.
A list of the current object codes (income and expense classes) is available by contacting your campus Chart of Accounts Manager or the Kuali Financial System's Object Code References Tables.
Infrastructure: It covers improvements related to land but not associated to buildings. Infrastructure expenditures have a life exclusive of a building. The infrastructure category of capital fixed assets include sidewalks, outside lighting, steam pipes, maintenance tunnels and sewer systems.
