  (1) a description of the property;

  (2) a serial number or other identification number;

  (3) the source of the property;

  (4) who holds title;

  (5) the acquisition date and cost of the property;

(c) Inventory. The subrecipient shall cooperate with department representatives in performing at least once every two years a physical inventory of all real property and equipment, as defined in §31.3 of this chapter, purchased in whole or in part with state or federal capital funds administered by the department. However, during the time period between these physical inventories, the subrecipient shall promptly notify the department in writing of all changes in the status of that real property and equipment in order that department records may be kept current. On or before November 1 of each year, the subrecipient shall provide the department with an accurate inventory, including the mileage, of all vehicles used in public transportation service. Property shall remain on the department's and subrecipient's inventories until such time as the property is formally disposed of in accordance with the requirements outlined in §31.57 of this subchapter.
