GovDeals Success Story

GovDeals is an important tool for facilitating the sale of retired state property by allowing the state agency to recoup some of the original cost on items no longer needed. One notable sale was the state’s 2009 Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. The auction was held through GovDeals and sold for $1,526,650 after a one-month listing.
