State Surplus Property Auctions for Municipalities to Purchase

Overview

The Department of Administrative Services, Surplus Property Program is the legally authorized agent in the State for the disposition of all usable property that a state agency deems surplus to its operating needs.

If the surplus property cannot be transferred between state agencies, it is then offered to municipalities.  If the property is not claimed by a municipality, at that point the property is offered for sale to the public.  This sale process is conducted through an online auction process where members of the public can preview and bid on former state property in an online auction setting.

It is important to note that depending upon state business needs, there is not a predictable way to forecast what property will become available and when property will become available for auction.

When property becomes available for auction, the auctions are held online at the Public Surplus.  We encourage the public to review the auction site regularly and take advantage of the program offerings.
