Washington, DC – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced the launch of GovSales.gov, the Federal Asset Sales E-Gov Initiative’s new web site that provides single-point, public access to surplus, seized or forfeited assets for sale by the Federal government.  To shop now, visit www.GovSales.gov.

GovSales.gov allows the public to search listings of surplus and forfeited property for sale by the Federal government ranging from luxury items such as furs and jewelry to automobiles and homes.  The web site’s single-point access makes it easier for the public to find and purchase these goods, and the online convenience of GovSales.gov provides shopping options that span across multiple national and regional federal sales centers. 

“The Federal Asset Sales Initiative is one of the President’s Electronic Government Initiatives, and it’s one of the five E-Government programs managed by GSA.  GovSales.gov’s official launch supports this important Presidential initiative and highlights GSA’s commitment to better serve our customers,” said GSA Administrator Lurita A. Doan.

The Federal Asset Sales Initiative’s goal is to create a secure, efficient, and effective online marketplace for the public to find and buy commercial/residential real estate and other assets from the federal government.  To learn more about the Federal Asset Sales Initiative visit http://gsa.gov/fedassetsales

GSA is a centralized, federal procurement, property management, policy development and information provision agency, created by Congress to improve government efficiency and help federal agencies better serve the public. In this role, GSA acquires products and services on behalf of federal agencies; plays a key role in developing and implementing government-wide policies; provides services and solutions for the office operations of more than one million federal workers; and encourages a citizen-centric relationship with government by providing a single "point of entry" to the information and services citizens need in a timeframe they can appreciate. This allows citizens to receive accurate, timely and consistent answers and information, and helps federal agencies better respond to citizen inquiries.
