In the past, Voyageurs National Park held silent bid auctions or live auctions for surplus property. Today, the park must use an online surplus government property website call GSA Auctions. This website gives individuals or companies the opportunity to bid on surplus property. Voyageurs is currently working on disposing of surplus property and has begun to use the GSA Auctions website.

Parties interested in viewing, but not bidding on, surplus property can go to www.gsaauctions.gov and browse the website.

Parties interested in bidding on surplus property must register online at www.gsaauctions.gov. Once at the website, the register button is located near the top right corner of the web page. Interested parties simply follow the registration process to gain access to bid on property. The frequently asked questions posted on the website provide helpful information.

Successful bidders on GSA Auctions have two calendar days to pay for the item and 10 calendar days to remove the item. All payment is by credit card.

The park will set up a notification email list for those who wish to receive an announcement when an item is posted to GSA Auctions. If you want to be on this list please send an email to Kathleen_przybylski@nps.gov with GSA Auctions in the subject line. Unless otherwise noted in the email, the email address from which the email is sent will be the one added to the notification list.
