Federal Property Program

In addition to surplus property retired by the State of West Virginia, the West Virginia State Agency for Surplus Property (WVSASP) may also coordinate the donation of property retired by the federal government thanks to the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949.  This federal property is available to state and local public entities and non-profit organizations who have a current Application for Eligibility on file.  Please note that in addition to the cost listed by the federal government, WVSASP is required by the U.S. General Services Administration to charge a low service fee for acquired donated property.

The federal property program offers a wide variety of items, including bicycles, boats, computers, construction equipment, fire trucks, food preparation supplies and equipment, household items, industrial/trade machinery, lab equipment, lighting, medical, dental, and veterinary equipment and supplies, musical instruments, mobile homes, office equipment, photography and recording equipment, recreational goods, recycling, reclamation and disposal equipment, refrigeration and air conditioning equipment, tires, tools, trailers, tractors, and more.  Like WVSASP, the listed property varies and is not guaranteed to be available.

Entities which obtain federal property must put the property into use within one year and use it for at least one year (or 18 months in some instances) and may not sell the property, loan it, or trade it until the utilization period is over.  Tearing down for parts is prohibited unless prior authorization is given by WVSASP.  Personal and non-use of surplus property is strictly prohibited.


How to Screen and Obtain Federal Property

Organizations interested in obtaining federal property may screen the property at GSAXcess.gov using their unique user ID and password.  The West Virginia State Agency for Surplus Property is no longer able to provide a generic account for browsing purposes.  Interested eligible organizations must contact WVSASP at (304) 766-2626 to obtain a unique user ID and password.

Once an entity finds property that it would like to obtain, the organization must contact WVSASP to make arrangements for securing the property.  All federal property is offered on an “as is, where is” basis, and the requesting organization is responsible for the pickup and transport of the property from its current location to the eligible organization’s location.
