GovDeals is the industry standard in the North American Government online surplus auction market servicing over 13,000 agencies to date. With an outside team of account managers spread throughout the US and Canada, we have local representatives available to help every agency maximize their returns through a system that provides complete control and transparency to the surplus process.

U.S. Communities and National IPA, both wholly-owned subsidiaries of OMNIA Partners, have come together as OMNIA Partners, Public Sector. All public sector participants already registered with National IPA or U.S. Communities continue to have access to all contracts, with certain exceptions, in the portfolio and do not need to re-register to use a legacy National IPA, legacy U.S. Communities, or new OMNIA Partners contract. U.S. Communities and National IPA remain separate legal entities and lead agency contracts completed under each brand are effective and available for use through the contract’s approved term. In the event we believe re-registration is necessary for any reason, OMNIA Partners will let you know.

We have nearly 8,000 clients at the city, county, or state level, including utility companies, public authorities and hospitals. GovDeals prides itself on staying knowledgeable of the different rules and processes between cities and states and we have regional representatives on hand who know your local area laws and can help you navigate through the selling process.
Almost 3,000 fire/rescue and law enforcement agencies across the US have adopted the GovDeals solution to sell their retired fleet vehicles, emergency vehicles, and confiscated items. We appreciate the delicate nature of some of these sales and can assist our clients in selling to the general public, or in selling to a restricted buyer base, such as other fire departments or police stations only.
GovDeals has a dedicated marketing team whose top priority is to market your auctions to the general public, in addition to our network of past bidders and buyers of GovDeals. This marketing method has proven successful in bringing more visitors to the website and increasing the returns for our sellers. A few examples of the marketing we provide are:
In order to make the local market aware of your auction, GovDeals Marketing will assist you by preparing press releases and distribution them to newspapers and other publications in your local and surrounding area. Additionally, our other strategic and specialized marketing efforts can be utilized. We can provide an outdoor banner if there is a high traffic area in which it could be displayed.
We will provide you a personalized link that can be placed on your website. This link will go directly to your current auctions on the GovDeals site. This makes it very easy for prospective bidders to navigate your webpage, and quickly see your available assets.
The GovDeals Marketing Team utilizes national media outlets such as CarDaddy, Rock and Dirt, 1st Responder, and Aircraft Dealer to put the focus on your specific assets and drive buyers back to your auctions.
GovDeals uses social media to promote your assets to our followers on a more personal level. We follow our clients that use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and other social media platforms. This creates a network between you, your followers, and us.
GovDeals prides itself on being a "green" solution for our clients. Online auctions negate the time, energy and carbon footprint of a live auction where most attendees don't even purchase assets. Selling your items online provides you an environmentally friendly method of asset transfer.
