On July 10, 2008 updated Informa-
tion Technology (IT) standards and
guidelines for data security and risk
assessment were enacted (http://

Data security standards identify fac-
ulty and staff roles and responsibili-
ties for protecting private data.
Guidelines are offered to help users
and IT workers understand appropri-
ate private data protections for
emails, instant messaging, Web lap-
tops, PDA's, CD-ROMs, thumb drives,
and other portable devices and me-

The IT risk assessment standard was
updated to require that at least once
every five years all campus units con-
duct a comprehensive IT risk assess-
ment and transmit a mitigation strat-
egy report to the UF Information Secu-
rity Manager.

Guidelines and Web tools are provided
to assist units with their assessments.
While IT workers will likely manage
the assessments, it is vital that unit
administration support and partici-
pate in the assessment process along
with IT workers and other unit staff.

Purchases made by public nonprofit
educational institutions like the Uni-
versity of Florida are generally ex-
empt from sales tax as long as the
purchase is used primarily for the
educational programs and activities
of the institution. However, the Uni-
versity is responsible for collecting
and remitting sales tax for sales,
unless the purchaser provides a
valid tax exemption certificate, DR-
14. Certain activities that we may
view as fundraising or cost recov-
ery, the Florida Department of Reve-
nue may view as sales.

When making a deposit to your de-
partment's account, the proceeds
should be divided between the ap-

plicable revenue and sales tax account
codes. Departments should maintain
records that document taxable and ex-
empt sales.

When sales and use taxes are collected,
it is important to complete the appro-
priate sales tax form and submit it to
University Tax Services, no later than
the 10th of every month. Directives
and examples can be found at: http://

If you have any questions regarding
your specific activities, contact Univer-
sity Tax Services at http://

The University has established direc-
tives and procedures for safeguard-
ing attractive and sensitive property.

Attractive and sensitive property is
tangible personal property that costs
less than $1,000 and can be charac-
terized as "walk away" items. These
items are prone to theft because
they are either not secured, are eas-
ily portable, contains new technol-
ogy and/or they are adaptable for
personal use.
