JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The city of Jacksonville is partnering with GovDeals
to bring surplus auctions online.
This new form of auctioneering will save taxpayers money with a reduced commission fee from the previous auctioneer.
In addition to saving taxpayer dollars, moving the auctions online
allows for a faster turnover of surplus items and reduces the Procurement Division's footprint in the surplus yard.
Tampa started a similar online auction program in July of 2007 and has since gained $1.3 million in revenue.
