Hackensack Sells Surplus Property Online

August 24, 2007 – Hackensack, NJ

The City of Hackensack has selected GovDeals (www.govdeals.com), a state-of- the-art, online auction service for City, County and State governments and agencies, to conduct online sales of their surplus property and equipment. Hackensack joins over 1,400 governments nationwide, including 20 other New Jersey governments, that have adopted GovDeals’ online auction solution. GovDeals is specifically designed to enable governmental entities and their agencies the ability to sell surplus and confiscated vehicles, assets and property over the Internet, as well as to support redistribution of excess assets within public institutions.

"GovDeals is an excellent solution for managing surplus equipment and property,” said Raymond Carnevale of the City of Hackensack. “By selling property online when it becomes available it is no longer necessary to store items in anticipation of an annual auction. Storage and depreciation costs are reduced and our surplus is exposed to the vastness of the Internet which should bring in more money” Carnevale added.

Hackensack joins other governments in New Jersey’s Division of Local Government Service’s e-procurement pilot program. The program is designed to give local government the ability to quickly engage services such as GovDeals.

GovDeals is endorsed by numerous Municipal and County associations nationwide as strategic partners offering online auction services to members.

Bidders can register free of charge at the GovDeals website www.govdeals.com.  Hackensack's items can be found here.

GovDeals provides state-of-the art online auction services to governmental entities throughout the United States. Founded in 1999 GovDeals is a division of Informs, Inc. (Information Management Specialists) which has provided custom purchasing and procurement software solutions to government for over 27 years.
