Federal Surplus Property Program

What's Next

There is no guarantee that a request for surplus property will approved. Once a federal agency has reported excess property to GSA, GSA generally holds a 21-day federal screening of the property. 

If no federal agency selects the property in this timeframe, it will be made available for donation to state and local governments and public organizations. Both excess and surplus customers can screen personal property simultaneously, though items are available for selection first to federal agencies. 

Eligible donees need to submit their requests to DAS within the 21-day screening period.  After that time, the property rolls into Sales and is no longer available for donation.
