Surplus Property

The Surplus Property Office at Texas A&M University at Galveston is responsible for the transfer, storage, and ultimate disposition of furniture, equipment, and supplies which are surplus to the needs of the university.  The primary objective of the Surplus Property Office is to return to use by Texas A&M, or by a political subdivision of the State of Texas, property that has been declared surplus. Surplus property that is not reclaimed by Texas A&M or the State of Texas is then publicly sold to the highest bidder.
