Amarillo, Texas – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announces the upcoming sale of the Cliffside Federal Helium System located northwest of Amarillo, Texas. The federal government is disposing of the facility to meet the requirements of the Helium Stewardship Act of 2013. In accordance with the law, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is to sunset its management of the Cliffside Federal Helium System and report any excess helium and helium assets to GSA to follow the statutory disposal process. The upcoming sale will take place in late Summer 2022 with the bid opening expected in August.
“GSA’s Real Property Utilization and Disposal Division helps federal agencies dispose of assets that are no longer needed to support their agency’s mission,” said GSA Property Disposal Branch Chief William Rollings. “Collaborative interagency efforts like these support a more effective government allowing agencies to focus on their missions while GSA provides real estate expertise.”
