Sample Federal InventoryItems available through Federal Surplus include vehicles, office equipment and furnishings, tools and other miscellaneous items.

Viewing and acquiring inventory available within the General Service Administration (GSA) Federal Surplus Program is easy! Simply follow these directions:

  1. Request a personalized username and password from karyn.hartwig-evans@iowa.gov for the GSA web site.

  2. Go to the GSA Personal Property Management System web site at https://ppms.gov/login.

  3. Search for property available in the US by location, category or specific item.

  4. Use the contact information listed if you have any questions regarding the item's condition or specifications.

  5. After you have found an item(s) that you wish to acquire, please e-mail Karyn Hartwig-Evans at karyn.hartwig-evans@iowa.gov with the Item Control Number, Description, Ending Screening Date and Location.

  6. At this time, IPI will research acquisition and freight costs and will provide you an estimate to your agency. IPI will attempt to provide you an estimate within three working days from receiving your request.

  7. If you are agreeable to the estimated costs, IPI will attempt to acquire the equipment your want to utilize.

  8. If GSA does award the property to IPI, we will make arrangements to have the property shipped directly to your location. Once property has been allocated and the necessary paperwork has been distributed, the Donee has the option to arrange delivery of the property themselves. This can be done by hiring a third party, such as UPS/FedEx/a freight company, or picking up the property yourself. IPI will invoice your for the amount quoted after the property has been delivered. For vehicles, IPI will submit the proper paperwork to the Iowa DOT for a title, which will be sent to your agency.

If you have any questions, please contact Karyn Hartwig-Evan at 515-266-6913 or karyn.hartwig-evans@iowa.gov.
