Information for State Entities Property Coordinators

The Surplus Property Division assists state agencies with the disposal of all state-owned personal property. This includes any tangible property that is not real estate.

We are also responsible for the redistribution of state- and federal-owned personal property. We not only help you dispose of the property you no longer need, but we also help you obtain property to support your day-to-day operations.

Make a Property Request or Disposal

If you need to request or dispose of property, contact your Property Coordinator. Each State agency has a designated Property Coordinator who works with our office to acquire and dispose of property. If you do not know who your Property Coordinator is, please contact our office.

Benefits of the Programs

The Surplus Property program offers many benefits to state agencies. The program helps guide agencies through the process of redistributing or disposing of surplus property and provides an audit trail to ensure compliance with state and federal laws. Additionally, the program returns a percentage of proceeds from sales back to agencies, generating millions of dollars in revenue for the state each year. Participation in the Surplus Property program is a win-win for Georgia state agencies, providing both financial and compliance benefits.
