Alex Giannantonio, Director of Fleet Policy and Administration for OSD’s Office of Vehicle Management (OVM), also oversees the State Surplus Property Office (SSPO) and the Surplus Property Program (SPP) — one of OSD’s most popular programs, according to website analytics. The SSPO manages the disposal, transfer, and sale of state-owned property that exceeds agency need – things like office equipment, furniture, and clothing.

Take a look at our current listing and learn how, in addition to state departments, cities and towns, schools, and non-profits may request items. The SSPO also is authorized by the Federal Government to act as its agent in obtaining Federal Surplus Property. Contact the SSPO for a username and password to access the Federal website.

OVM is responsible for the acquisition, administration, leasing, maintenance, and repair of Executive Agency vehicles. OVM staff provide vehicle acquisition recommendations and assistance (see our blog, Office of Vehicle Management: Lessons Learned for Vehicle Management and Acquisition), help agencies comply with the state fleet Fuel Efficiency Standard, and support the state’s Safe Driving Program through the “1-800 How Am I Driving?” hotline.

OVM periodically hosts auctions for surplus vehicles, with several auctions scheduled through November.
