Surplus Property

ADECA's Surplus Property Division is responsible for the sale of all property declared excess by state agencies who participate in the Surplus Property Program. It is also responsible for the transfer of all federal surplus property allocated to the state from both military bases and federal agencies.

At any given time, this division has approximately $50,000,000 in inventory on hand. This program saves the Alabama taxpayer millions of dollars annually by selling this property for a fraction of its value to public entities and eligible nonprofit organizations.

For eligibility requirements, see the page titled "Eligibility."

After a period of time, property can be sold to the general public. The "Public Sales" page has more information on our auctions, including terms and conditions.

This division has two warehouses - one located in Montgomery and one in Eva. The hours of operation for both warehouses is Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Information on Veteran Small Business Enhancement Act

The President signed Public Law (115-416) “Veteran Small Business Enhancement Act” on January 3, 2019. The provisions of the Law impact three federal agencies, the General Services Administration(GSA), Veterans Administration(VA) and the Small Business Administration(SBA).

At this time, the Alabama Surplus Property Program cannot offer surplus property to a Veteran small business until policies and procedures have been developed and a Memorandum of Agreement is finalized.

The U.S. Veterans Administration will be generating the guidelines for the program, and we have been told not to expect them until 2020.

Please check our website regularly for any updates on the progress of this endeavor.
