What is a Fixed Price Sale? Fixed Price (Cash and Carry) - At fixed-price sales (also referred to as "Retail"), we post the selling prices on the property and sell the items on a first- come basis. Methods of Sale
May we sell personal property at fixed prices to State agencies? Yes, before offering to the public, you may offer the property at fixed prices (through the State Agencies for Surplus Property) to any States, territories, possessions, political subdivisions thereof, or tax supported agencies therein. Methods of Sale
What is a term contract? A term contract is used when an the item to be sold is generated on a continuous basis. Property is usually sold as scrap Property may include electronics, iron & steel, or aluminum. The sale is much like a sealed bid sale but includes a term length of time the contract will be in force. Methods of Sale
What is a negotiated sale? While it is the policy to sell property after publicly advertising for bids, when circumstances dictate, personal property may be sold by negotiation, subject to obtaining such competition as is feasible. Invitations to bid are sent to a limited number of bidders. Bids are evaluated SCO requests best and final offer Awards are usually made to the high bidder? Payment and removal requirements are similar to internet sales Methods of Sale
