Additional documentation to support the submission:

All Boise State computers and related equipment are either Apple, Dell, or HP, and all are Energy Star Compliant. This report captures all Apple, Dell, and HP electronics ordered in calendar year 2019. Because our tracking system does not specifically track Energy Star compliance, it is unknown

While almost all copiers and printers are also Energy Star compliant, we chose to only count laptops and computers due to the fact that they are ordered as Energy Star compliant unless specifically told otherwise, and we do not have a way of breaking up the orders and confirming that this is the case for all copiers and printers.

Due to our limited ability to track specific orders, while we may have EPEAT certified equipment on campus, we do not have a way to track this at the moment and thus it is an opportunity to build out this system to tracking in the future.
