The items that are at the auction vary from month to month and no inventories of items are available for viewing prior to the sale. Items that are no longer in service for the department they were originally purchased for are sent to the surplus auction. All items are to be in working condition when they are sent over. If the items are broken or not working (without minor or obvious repair), discard of them properly. They cannot be sold at the auction if they are not in working condition.
