The General Services Administration recently launched GovSales.gov, a new Web site providing public access to surplus, seized or forfeited assets for sale by the federal government.
GovSales.gov is part of the Federal Asset Sales E-Government Initiative, which is one of the President's Electronic Government Initiatives. GSA launched the site Oct. 3.
GovSales.gov allows the public to search listings of surplus and forfeited property for sale by the government ranging from luxury items such as furs and jewelry to automobiles and homes, according to GSA. The site's single-point access helps the public find and buy goods easily, and the online convenience provides shopping options that span across multiple national and regional federal sales centers.
