The Texas Facilities Commission manages the disposition of surplus property donated to the state by federal programs. Our Federal Surplus Property Program requests, warehouses, and transfers surplus federal government equipment to eligible organizations in Texas. The TFC's Federal Surplus Property Program certifies organizations as eligible under federal management regulations to receive and use the property. Private citizens and the general public may not participate in this program.

The program is not funded by the legislature, but is totally supported by the revenues generated from handling fees. This means that the cost of maintaining the staff and facilities are passed on to the program participants in the form of the handling fee. Handling fees will vary according to condition of the item and demand, but are usually significantly lower than the cost of comparable items on the open market. The difference in value is considered a "donation" from the federal government; hence, participants in the program are referred to as "donees." Property received through this program are subject to federal handling and use restrictions including the requirement that the recipient organization keep and use the property for a certain amount of time (usually 12-18 months) before disposing of it.

FSP is an equal opportunity program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
