Information for Local Governments

All Georgia-based local government entities are eligible to obtain surplus property that comes from state agencies and the federal government. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to acquire property at a reduced rate, such as:

  • office equipment
  • furniture
  • electronics
  • construction equipment
  • medical supplies
  • other items

Our Surplus Property Division administers the redistribution and disposal of excess property throughout the state. Acquiring surplus property instead of buying new helps local governments maximize financial resources while saving tax dollars in the community.

To participate in the Surplus Property program, local governments must enroll and maintain eligibility through an annual renewal. Most local governments in Georgia are already enrolled in the program. If you are unsure of your status, contact DOAS Surplus Property Division.

We are here to help you save resources and achieve your business goals. For more information about the program, watch the video below:
