(7) All pertinent information on the ultimate transfer, replacement, or disposal of the equipment.
(b) Every two years, at a minimum, a physical inventory shall be conducted and the results reconciled with the property records to verify the existence, current utilization, and continued need for the equipment. Any discrepancies between quantities determined by the physical inspection and those shown in the accounting records shall be investigated to determine the causes of the differences.
(c) In order to insure adequate safeguards to prevent loss, damage or theft of equipment, a control system shall be used.
