The City of Baton Rouge-Parish of East Baton Rouge recently contracted with an online government auction site to auction surplus and police-seized items. Use of online auction provides for greater benefits and cost savings to the City and taxpayers. This allows greater exposure of surplus items to a broader audience.
Municibid through a request for proposal (RFP) was chosen because it is designed for local and state government entities to increase non-tax revenue by enabling the City to more effectively sell surplus items by using Municibid’s online government auction platform. Each department/agency provides Inventory Control with listings of surplus equipment and furniture.
Inventory Control will schedule items for pick-up. No property will be received or transferred from the Surplus storage facility three weeks prior to the Auction. This is necessary for Auction preparation. Departments and Agencies desiring to view surplus property should call Inventory Control at 225-389-4965 for appointment or email us.
