GSA Auctions

Metadata Updated: February 4, 2022

The General Services Administration (GSA) has a history of pioneering electronic solutions for streamlining and enhancing the management of excess and surplus Federal assets. GSA continued the transformation of the Federal disposal process throughout the late 1990s with the introduction and subsequent refinement of the Federal Disposal System, a centralized electronic clearinghouse for reporting and transferring excess/surplus personal property within the Federal community and among eligible donees.

The GSA Auctions website ( has been developed to complete GSA's transformation to an all-electronic asset management system. The site offers the general public the opportunity to bid electronically on a wide array of Federal assets. The auctions are completely web-enabled, allowing all registered participants to bid on a single item or multiple items (lots) within specified timeframes.

GSA Auctions offers Federal personal property assets ranging from commonplace items (such as office equipment and furniture) to more select products like scientific equipment, heavy machinery, airplanes, vessels, and vehicles. GSA Auctions online capabilities allow GSA to offer assets located across the country to any interested buyer, regardless of location.

Participants may choose to browse items that are offered on this site or may choose to search for items and place bids. In order to place a bid(s), participants must register first. To register, please go to the GSA Auctions homepage and click on register.
