Sealed Bid Auction

Fort Hays State University is holding a sealed bid auction to dispose of a variety of surplus items. Items may be viewed at the newer storage building at the University Farm, just west of the site for previous auctions. Other items are south of the Witt Building located at the west edge of main campus. Viewing times are October 20th and 21st, noon to 3:00 p.m. each day.

All bids must be turned in to the FHSU Physical Plant office, Brooks Building 109, by 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 22, 2014. E-mail bids will also be accepted. Send e-mail bids to:, preferably by 2:00 p.m., October 21, but no later than 10:00 a.m., October 22, 2014.

Successful (and unsuccessful) bidders will be notified of bid results by phone or e-mail. Sites will be open Thursday, October 23, noon to 3:00 p.m. and Friday, October 24, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., for items to be picked up. Hint:  Bidding with odd cents instead of even dollars usually avoids having a tie bid. It would be appreciated if purchasers could have the correct change available when paying for items.

Details about items included in the auction, instructions for bidding on items, and a bid sheet are attached. Photos follow of some of the items that are included in this sealed bid auction.
