The Rome (NY) City School District has begun selling its surplus and obsolete items on eBay through a sales arrangement with Oneida County.

District Director of Information and Technology Pamela Mazzaferro said the district has been testing the usefulness of eBay for about a year before ramping up the sales. The first round of items included various computers and related materials with multiple items in some lots, plus a refrigerator, work table, and sink. Items being sold have been declared obsolete or surplus by the board of education.

Prior to using eBay, the district’s arrangements for surplus items had included seeking sealed bids for items considered of value, while other items like obsolete computers were given away, if possible, or discarded. The county’s eBay listings for sales can be found under a seller name of “oneidacounty-surplus.” They also can be viewed via the school district’s Web site at romecds.org after selecting links for the “Administration” and “Business and Finance” categories.
