To help government entities curb costs, State and Federal Surplus Services of the Ohio Department of Administrative Services facilitates the recycling of supplies within government. Prices are considerably lower than buying new. Nearly half of the surplus items are purchased by another government entity. The remaining items are sold at public auctions.
State Surplus has been collaborating with stakeholders and working to upgrade the systems it uses to manage customer information and inventory, produce invoices, and issue refunds to state agencies for surplus property sold. Beginning December 4th 2017, state agencies must now complete the online surplus property turn-in documents.
All supporting documentation (e.g. pictures, supplier trade-in quotes, etc.) should be included as attachments to the turn-in documents. Upon submission, the turn-in documents and any attachments will be submitted to State Surplus for review and processing. State Surplus will either approve the disposition, amend the disposal method to be used, or request additional information before selecting a disposal method. State agencies will be notified by email when State Surplus has completed its review.
State Surplus will not approve of any property disposals that take place before a turn-in document is submitted.
For an optimal experience, please use Google Chrome as your internet browser if possible to submit these turn-in documents.
