Surplus Property

Your First Source of Supply

We manage the equitable redistribution and disposal of the State’s personal property assets based on legislated guidelines. Personal property includes any tangible property that is not real estate.

We also serve as the State Agency for Surplus Property (SASP) for federal property disposal programs and act as the federal government's agent for eligible recipients to acquire federal surplus property. 

The Surplus Property Division:

  • Assists state and local governments, eligible nonprofits, and other qualified groups to acquire surplus property. 
  • Makes surplus property available for purchase to the public through online auction vendors via Georgia Auctions and Sales.
  • Saves taxpayer dollars by reducing operational risks and maximizing the return on personal property assets for the State of Georgia and its communities.
  • Provides cost savings, cost avoidance, and life extension of personal property through reusing, reducing, and recycling.
