Missing or Stolen Items

Reporting an Asset Missing or Stolen

There may be times when you need to report a lost or stolen asset, or you come across an asset previously reported as lost or stolen. If an asset is missing or stolen, notify your department manager, supervisor and the Inventory Contact Person (ICP). If the asset is a computing device, submit a Tech Café ticket to assist you in determining if the device is reporting on the network. If Category 1 data was stored or present on the computing device, send a copy of the form to the Office of Information Security. You can use the same form to report missing, reinstated, stolen and recovered assets.

If you conduct a thorough search and the university asset cannot be found, and no evidence of theft is apparent (e.g., forced entry, etc.), then the item is considered missing. Follow the below steps to report the missing asset:

  • Download the Missing Property/Reinstatement Form, select Missing and fill out the rest of the form
  • Obtain the required signatures
  • Email the form, along with all supporting documentation, to the UTSA property manager in the Financial Services and University Bursar Office  
  • Inventory staff will mark the asset missing, and the asset will remain on your department’s inventory while you continue to search
  • Inventory will send a completed copy of the form to your department ICP
  • Your vice president will be notified of the disposal if the asset has not been found after two years

The UTSA property manager will determine negligence for assets reported as missing.

If you are successful in finding the missing item, follow these procedures to report it:
