Surplus Property for Local Governments

Welcome to the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) Surplus Property Program 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 such as office equipment, furniture, electronics, construction equipment, medical supplies, and other items at a reduced rate. We are here to help you save resources and achieve your business goals.

The DOAS 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.

Read about the success of one local government​ in Chatsworth, Georgia. Each year, dozens of cities, counties, school districts and others use surplus property to save substantial revenue that can be used toward other important operational needs. Let us help you​ do the same!

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 the Surplus Property Office. ​



State of Georgia surplus property is listed online for five days for local governments and other eligible program participants to access property prior it being made available to the public. Government entities can request State property directly through DOAS Surplus Property.

Federal property is obtained through the General Services Administration's Federal Surplus Property Donation Program. In addition to State property, the Surplus Property Division also facilitates the acquisition of federal property and provides program participants user credentials to search for property on the GSAXcess.gov​ site. Surplus Property makes the official request for federal property on behalf of the government entity.

Eligible local government entities include:

  • City and county municipalities
  • Board of Education/K-12 city and county school systems
  • Police and fire departments
  • Other government authorities


  • Step 1 – Confirm your organization's enrollment.
    Contact the Surplus Property Office at 404-657-8544 to check the status of your organization's enrollment.

  • Step 2 – Search for property online.
    Depending on your status, search for State or federal property by category, item, or location. See the Areas of Focus section below to search for property.

If you are not enrolled, create an online account and apply. There is no fee to apply.

Thank you for your interest in the Surplus Property program.​
