shop for all physical inventory needs. The portal includes all documents necessary to facilitate
an inventory and can be accessed from the following link:
6. Communicating questions and issues: Direct all questions and report all issues for both the
personal and real property inventory via e-mail to This account will be
monitored throughout the inventory. For faster service, please add “REAL PROPERTY” or “PERSONAL

on the CGPortal site.

    A. Units must be proactive and ensure their records are accurate in OFA prior to the count
phase of the physical inventory, as well as the subsidiary systems SAM, HMIS, ATONIS, FMVRS,
    B. Units should ensure all real and personal property assets on-site are entered into OFA.
If capital personal property was purchased and not recorded during the fiscal year, send
invoices, receiving reports, and other supporting documentation to FINCEN (FR) for record
updates by 18 JUL 2018. If real property assets are not listed in OFA, contact your responsible
Civil Engineering Office.
    C. Unit APOs should verify access to run the CGBI Physical Inventory Reconciliation

Wide Personal Property”, which filters out all non-capitalized personal property not subject

property assets. Units will be provided a customized inventory count sheet listing only those
assets required to be inventoried.

to reduce the workload on units and streamline the existence and completeness testing and
