The District of Columbia now auctions its surplus property online through GovDeals, a Liquidity Services, Inc. marketplace. The district awarded the contract for the management of the inventory, appraisal, sale and shipping of the city's surplus property to Liquidity Services Inc. LSI conducts auctions of city assets such as vehicles, police automobile accessories, computer equipment, radios and other communications equipment, office furniture and other supplies through its online marketplace. The auctions are expected to improve data tracking and financial oversight of the city's surplus asset disposition activities.
Metropolitan Police Department's seized, abandoned and surplus property, including vehicles, are included in these auctions. A public inspection date of the property is included on the web page. All property offered for sale is "AS IS," "WHERE IS," and without recourse against the Government of the District of Columbia.
