General Information

Pioneer Restore opened with just online sales in 2014. The store serves to sell University owned items that are considered "surplus" or items that are no longer needed by the University. The Store is self-sufficient, meaning it pays for itself through sales. All Pioneer Restore operations must comply with the Wisconsin Department of Administration Procurement Manual, PRO-F 1-3. Pioneer Restore is in the process of developing localized policy and procedures. See our draft policies here.
