Surplus, Supplies & Equipment

State Surplus Property Program
The DGS State Surplus Property Program offers state-owned office furniture, equipment, and supplies for sale to the general public through our distribution center in Harrisburg, special sales held periodically throughout the state or online auctions.  We also offer private online sales for municipalities to purchase heavy equipment and manage the Commonwealth's recycling program. 

Federal Surplus Property Program
The Federal Surplus Property Program offers a variety of property to municipalities, school districts, fire and police departments, and certain non-profit organizations.  Property is donated to eligible entities directly from the federal government for a small service charge.  If the property is not on-hand, the Federal Surplus Property Program staff will try to locate equipment.

Federal Fixed Price Vehicle Program
The Federal Fixed Price Vehicle Program offers low-mileage, late-model General Services Administration fleet vehicles such as cars, trucks, vans, alternative fuel vehicles, dump trucks, ambulances and fire trucks for resale to eligible entities.

Through the 1122 New Property Program, eligible entities are able to take advantage of the discounted pricing that the federal government receives because of their purchasing power. Federal contracts can be used as a tool of comparison, with the prices serving as a benchmark for comparison with independent bids or negotiating. Federal contracts can save you time and money since they have already been through the bid process.
