Excess Property Sales


After completing the internal and Federal screening process via GSAXcess, LBNL/DOE surplus property may be sold to the public and Berkeley Lab employees. Sales of surplus items may be accomplished by sealed bid, on-line auction or scrap sales.  Online and sealed bid sales are in-person pickup only.

Online Sales

Public Surplus Online Auctions

Berkeley Lab’s on-line auctions of surplus property are accessed through Public Surplus. To view current auctions, potential buyers will first need to login.

Sealed Bid Sales

A sealed-bid sale is a type of sales process in which all bidders simultaneously submit sealed bids so that no bidder knows how much the other sale participants have bid. Sealed bid refers to a written bid placed in a sealed envelope.

Upcoming Sealed Bid Sale notifications will be distributed 3 weeks prior to the sale date. Those interested in receiving sealed bid sale notifications can email PropertyManagement@lbl.gov.

Berkeley Lab is not offering Sealed Bid Sales at this time.
