Small update to asset disposal process

If you’re disposing assets, you might notice a new disposal type: “Other.” This disposal type is reserved for use by the Controller’s Office, to support lease equipment.

Department users should not use this new category, and instead use a different category type for equipment.

For questions, please see the Dispose Asset Reference Guide.
