Government ministries and departments make their own arrangements for disposing of
items. Some of these are disposed of via auctions, and some are sold by other means,
for example by companies who are specialised in this field. The relevant sources
are listed in the members area.
Government auctions may often contain newer items for sale than more traditional
auctions. This is because sometimes the government sets up temporary organisations
(for example, following a national emergency). After the work is complete, it will
often close, leaving computers and other equipment surplus to requirements that needs
to be disposed of quickly and cheaply.
