Surplus Property and Reutilization (SPR)

The Surplus Property and Reutilization program (SPR) is responsible for the proper disposal of all state-owned surplus personal property, vehicles, and other mobile equipment. We work with the public and state agencies through various avenues:

Federal Surplus Personal Property

Federal Surplus Personal Property allocates Federal surplus property to the state's qualified recipients.

Public Auction Services

Public Auctions are conducted either select months (vehicles/mobile equipment) or approximately every six weeks (surplus property).


Reutilization extends the useful life of state-owned property as well as reviews and approves the transferring, disposal, repurposing and recycling of the surplus property. This surplus personal property is available for sale to state and local government, school districts and non-profit organizations.
