Fixed Assets Training Program
The West Virginia State Agency for Surplus Property (WVSASP), in partnership with the West Virginia Purchasing Division, is pleased to announce a new training opportunity for state agency Asset Management Coordinators.  Each year, agencies are required to submit a certification to the Purchasing Division that they have entered all of their agency's reportable fixed assets into the wvOASIS Fixed Assets System.  However, following the implementation of wvOASIS's Phase C, there have been questions regarding how to properly enter fixed assets into the new system.

This new training opportunity will allow individuals to work one-on-one with WVSASP Fixed Assets/Inventory Unit personnel to practice hands-on procedures in the system with agency-specific items while receiving immediate feedback on the process.  Only those state employees responsible for adding, maintaining, and certifying his or her agency’s fixed assets, as well as retiring property no longer needed by the state agency, are permitted to attend.

Space will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be limited to four individuals per session.  Each session will last approximately three hours and will take place in the WVSASP conference room, located in its administrative building at 2700 Charles Avenue in Dunbar.

Questions regarding these training sessions may be directed to Sherry Fewell at (304) 356-2424 or Sherry.L.Fewell@wv.gov.  Questions regarding registration may be directed to Samantha Knapp at (304) 558-7022 or Samantha.S.Knapp@wv.gov
