Welcome to SaskSurplus, the Government of Saskatchewan’s surplus asset sale Web site.

Minimum “Reserve” Bid Prices Update

Due to the success of the pilot project, minimum “reserve” bid prices will be posted on all sale items going forward. Minimum bid prices have been implemented to make our monthly auction process smoother, and to help save you time and effort.

The Ministry of SaskBuilds and Procurement is responsible for the disposition of supplies for the Government of Saskatchewan.

Vehicles and Equipment
SaskBuilds and Procurement typically conducts vehicle and equipment sales on a monthly basis opening on the second Wednesday and closing at 10:00 A.M. sharp on the third Wednesday of each month. Items are sold using a bid process. Sales are typically advertised through through online local news media websites geotargeted to Saskatchewan citizens with additional details included on the SaskSurplus Website. 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 designated sites (per advertisement) or bidders can view a photo on the SaskSurplus Website. Viewing sale items online and physically is only available while the sale is open.

Office furnishings
Office furnishings and typical office equipment no longer needed by government organizations are donated by the Government of Saskatchewan to community based organizations in the province through the Community Donations Program. 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 Website ( www.communitydonations.ca ) for complete details and to register your organization for this program. Some surplus office furniture and equipment is also sold through the SaskSurplus Sale program.

Other surplus items
Other surplus items and equipment is also sold using a bid process. These items will be advertised on the SaskBuilds and Procurement Website (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.
