A brief description of steps the institution has taken to ensure that the purchasing policy, directives, or guidelines are followed:
The company that Dominican contracts for cleaning services has a green cleaning product purchasing policy. They created a document stating that all cleaning solutions purchased and used by the institution's custodial service will be Green Seal certified, and this document is included with Dominican's cleaning contract. Additionally, they have outfitted the university with cleaning solution dispensing systems containing Green Seal products, so no other products are brought in for use. And, employees do not have access to any other products, so it's not possible for them to use anything else.
