Surplus Property Program

Departments must periodically assess their inventories of equipment, supplies, and materials with the exclusion of land and buildings. Surplus property includes, office equipment and furniture, clothing, vehicles, and building materials.

Items no longer needed or used by Executive Departments are reported to the State Surplus Property Office. Surplus Property becomes available for transfer to executive departments, municipalities, or licensed non-profits. Items not transferred are sold to the general public via auction. The State Surplus Property Program is managed by the Operational Services Division’s State Surplus Property Office. The purpose of the Program is to insure that the Commonwealth realizes the maximum benefit from State-owned surplus property by regulating how such property is transferred to Executive Departments, municipalities, licensed non-profit organizations, and the general public. Surplus property includes office equipment, furniture, clothing, vehicles, and building materials (excluding land and buildings).
