The online auction program will minimize handling and warehousing costs as well as provide DPS proceeds from the sale of the contents.

Items from the upcoming auctions include surplus and/or obsolete multimedia equipment, athletic equipment, sporting goods, pianos, automotive technology, vehicles, furniture, and more!

This program is a result of findings by Procurement and Logistics Strategic Category Team (SCT) focused on inventory management.
