​ Surplus Property Programs
 The Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) - Surplus Property is responsible for the disposal of Georgia's state surplus personal property and is the General Services Administration's (GSA) partner for the Federal Surplus Personal Property Donation Program serving as the State Agency for Surplus Property (SASP). This section will assist you in understanding and utilizing these surplus programs.
 Surplus Property's primary mission is to make state and federal surplus property available to donees (state agencies, local governments, and eligible nonprofit organizations) before offering them to the public. Surplusing, or reusing rather than buying new, saves tax dollars by extending the life of property.

Property Restrictions
 There are restrictions on the use and disposal of any state or federal surplus property received through the program. Restrictions vary by the category of property received. The basic requirements are that the property is put into use within one year and used for one year from the in-use date. See the Surplus Property Manual, Chapter 6, for state property restrictions.

Federal restrictions can be viewed here: PDF Icon Federal Restrictions. Failure to comply with these restrictions may result in criminal prosecution. Please contact Surplus Property for guidance prior to disposing of surplus assets.
Service Charges
 Surplus Property is entirely self-funded through service charges for material received. Service charges are determined based on the quality, quantity and Fair Market Value (FMV) of the property.

There is always a service charge for local government and nonprofit customers, for both state and federal property. State entities will pay a service charge on federal surplus only.
