Finding Surplus Sales Advertisements

GSA advertises personal property available for public sale through:

  • Regional Telephone Information: Buyers can obtain information about upcoming sales by dialing GSA's regional telephone information lines for recorded messages (Note: Not all regions have recorded messages.)
  • Local Media Outlets: GSA advertises in local newspapers and on radio, and sometimes posts notices in public buildings.
  • National Media: Highly specialized sales, or those that might generate interest nationwide, are announced in national newspapers, trade journals, and periodicals.
  • FedBizOpps: GSA advertises sales of national interest online at FedBizOpps
