While the sealed bid process is the primary method used to sell surplus property, in special circumstances, the State Surplus Property Agency may utilize public auctions to sell property. Determination to utilize public auctions as a method of sale varies with the type and quantity of items made available by various state agencies.
All sales will be advertised on the NC State Surplus Website. Other media sources may be used to advertise such sales. Notice of upcoming sales will be listed on the website at least 30 days prior to the sale date. Specific sales information will be posted no less than 14 days prior to the sale.
Due to the different circumstances related to the sale of property by public auctions, Instructions, Terms and Conditions of Sale and Payment Terms will be provided with individual advertisements and will be announced at the start of the sale.
