    Sealed Bid

    Sealed bids are typically posted after 4 pm each Thursday. Prior to the bid ending the following Monday at midnight, please send an email to property.disposition@umich.edu and let us know what specific bid lot(s) your department is interested in. Departments have the first right of refusal on any items listed on the bid. This means, your department can buy the item for $1.00 over the highest bid we receive. You can either accept the price or we will award it to the highest bidder. We will notify you on Wednesday morning and ask you to reply by 1:00 pm the same day. We will just need confirmation that you agree to the price(s) and what shortcode you would like to use for the purchase. We will then work with you to schedule a curbside pickup of your items or delivery if your department is interested. This policy is honored on a first-come, first-served basis.
