Disposal Process Overview

The Ministry of Central Services is responsible for the disposition of supplies for the Government of Saskatchewan.

Vehicles and Equipment

Central Services conducts periodic vehicle and equipment sales throughout the year. These items are sold using a bid process. Sales are advertised in a number of Saskatchewan newspapers with additional details included on the SaskSurplus Web site. The public is invited to view the items for sale and if interested in bidding on an item they should complete a 'Bid Form' in accordance with the terms and conditions of that sale. The vehicles and equipment are available for viewing at the designated site (per advertisement) or they can view a photo on the SaskSurplus Web site.

Office furnishings

Office furnishings no longer needed by government organizations are donated by the Government of Saskatchewan to community based organizations in the province. The program enables government organizations to recycle useful furnishings and donate them to assist community organizations in the valuable work they do to strengthen our communities and our province. Community organizations can find free furnishings that are available in their city or local area and easily pick them up without incurring expensive delivery charges. Visit the Community Donations Web site (www.communitydonations.ca) for complete details and to register your organization for this program.

Other surplus items

Other surplus items are sold using a bid process. These items will be advertised on the Central Services Web site (www.sasksurplus.ca). Occasionally, if required, the government may use other sales methods such as an auction, which will be advertised in a number of Saskatchewan based newspapers.
