Just in time for the holidays, GSA auctions off goods


Written by

The General Services Administration is getting into the holiday spirit this season, auctioning off everything from an old helicopter to old jewelry to make an extra buck for taxpayers.

GSA has been shedding some weight by getting rid of excess property in an effort to cut costs. In 2013, GSA generated $97.7 million in sales by selling or transferring 213 of its facilities. According to a blog post by Matthew Burrell, press assistant at GSA, GSA has more than 800 properties moving into the disposal pipeline.

Here are some of the items GSA is auctioning off:

For just a little more than $250,000, you can get a 1984 helicopter aircraft.
