6. Rejected Assets on CCARTS

6.1 Receiving a CCART Error - Assets that give an error during the CCART process will need to be reinstated by Inventory. The type of information you give to inventory for each asset depends on the error

    1. When creating a CCART, you may encounter errors shown example below
    2. If you receive an error, take a screen shot (using cmd-cntrl-shift-4 on a Mac; Shift + Windows Key ⊞ + S on a PC) to save for later processing. It will be used in an email to inventory later in the process.
    3. After you take a screen shot, delete the rejected assets and move on with the CCART process. 

6.2 Rejected Asset Error Information 

    1. MISSING/STOLEN ELEMENTS
      • Take a picture of the UT tag on that item as proof that you have it. Here is an example:


    2. INVALID INVENTORY NUMBER
      • Take a picture of the tag on the item same as with “Missing/Stolen Elements”
      • Provide: the computer’s description, serial number and current location. 
    3. ALREADY IN [CCART Doc ID]
      • This error means someone has previously created a CCART with the item that you are processing. If you give inventory the CCART doc ID they will be able to give you the contact information of the person who created the cart. Email the owner of the CCART and see if you can find a resolution that helps you process the asset for surplus. This resolution usually means that other person deletes the CCART on their end. 
  1. 6.3 Contacting Inventory 
    1. After you have all the information on your rejected assets you will email inventory. Their central email intake is invccart@austin.utexas.edu
    2. The Inventory Operations manager is most likely who you will be working with during this process. They are responsive to email and will help to guide you through reinstating problematic assets.
    3. To make the process more organized, its recommend to create a Word document and insert a 2x1 table with the tag number next to information is needed for the rejected asset. (see example pictures above)
      • You will then send this specific information to inventory so that they may reinstate the asset
      • Remember to include the original screenshots of the errors during the CCART process
