3.7 Property Standards


For supplies acquired under an award, the title to the supplies vests with the recipient upon acquisition. For supplies acquired under a subaward, the title vests with the subrecipient upon acquisition.

  • Recipients or subrecipients must compensate the grant-making component for its share of residual inventory of unused supplies if both of the following apply:
    • The residual inventory of unused supplies exceeds $5,000 in total aggregate fair market value upon termination or completion of the funding support.
    • The supplies are not needed for any other federally sponsored programs or projects.
      • ✔ Compute the compensation amount in the same manner as for nonexpendable personal property or equipment.

Note: Special rules apply for supplies purchased with Byrne JAG funds – see discussion above.
