UCSD's Campus Asset Management System (CAMS)

Equipment at UCSD is managed through the Campus Asset Management System.  To learn more about CAMS, take advantage of these training opportunities:

UCSD has two types of equipment

  1. Inventorial equipment has an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more and must be tracked as property through CAMS (Campus Asset Management System) and through UCSD’s financial system.
  2. Non-inventorial equipment has an acquisition cost of $1,500-$4,999 and must be tracked only through the financial system, or the elective module in CAMS.
