GovDeals is an online auction system utilized by the University of Alabama, Property & Inventory Management, to post assets for public sale. GovDeals also has a special area set aside specifically for faculty and staff at the university, to view surplus property online,and select any items that may be needed with their specific department. Access to this area is restricted to UA employees, and must be requested by completing the GovDeals UA Department User Application. This form must be completed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no cost to departments for items available in this special online location. These items can also be viewed in the actual surplus area, located at 124 Ancillary Services Building.
Both, the public sale side and the departmental surplus side, can be accessed at www.govdeals.com. The specific login information entered determines which area you will have access to when you log in. Registration on this site is open to everyone who has a valid email address; however, it is strongly suggested that you do not utilize your UA email address for public sale accounts, as this will not allow you to have access to the departmental side. The email address cannot be utilized for more than one GovDeals account, and only the UA email address can be used for access to the department side.
