Additional documentation to support the submission:

Numbers listed above are for Information Technology Services (ITS) managed purchases, which includes faculty, staff, and academic/public lab computers as well as faculty and lab printers. All computers that faculty and staff can chose from are EPEAT Gold. The 1.5% expenditures on EPEAT Silver devices are printers. Not included in this are printers/copiers for administrative offices.
In addition, technology purchases funded through grants/start up funds for the academic division are outside the fiscal control of ITS, but generally these purchases are made with the guidance of ITS, so we expect that almost all devices purchased are in-line with ITS manufacturer/model specifications. Those purchases are a small part of overall electronics purchasing and are not included in the numbers provided.
