Asset Management provides fixed asset inventory information and analysis pertaining to the City's buildings, land and equipment to user departments and the City Controller's Office. Our goal is to ensure that our assets are being used in the most effective way possible.

Capital Assets and Property Control Items:
Capital Assets are major assets that are used in governmental operation and that benefit more than a single fiscal period. The City of Pittsburgh has determined that an asset of significant value shall be defined as an item with an acquisition cost of $5,000 or greater and buildings structures and capital leases with a value of at least $50,000. If an asset meets the threshold test of significant value and has a useful life of at least 2 years, it shall be classified as a Capital Asset and be included in the Capital Asset Accounting System.
The City defines Property Control Items to be assets with useful lives of two years or more, but with an acquisition cost of less than $5,000 (and greater than $1,000). Unlike those assets costing more than $5,000, Property Control Items are not capitalized. They are not carried on the City’s books with a value. They are not depreciated.
When an asset of the City of Pittsburgh has run its useful life for the City, we will auction it online through a partnership with GovDeals. Assets ranging from desks and filing cabinets, to vehicles and heavy equipment will be auctioned off as they are decommissioned.
