are retrieved from previous ROBOTS and used on 2016 ROBOTS must

My question is whether or not to count our Talon SRXs and 90C compressor we got from FIRST Choice. The Talon SRXes were given out as part of the Virtual KoP, so does that mean I don’t have to give a cost to any of the 6 that we have? Also, the 90C compressor is given in the Rookie KoP, but not in the veteran KoP. We got ours in FIRST Choice, so does that need to be counted? It would be the same reasoning as to why we don’t count the RoboRio (since it’s given in the Rookie KoP).
I wasn’t part of my team’s FIRST Choice this year, so I don’t know specific values. It seems like from that perspective we could have only received N Talons. Would the extra SRX’s be considered part of the CAW?
