A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn:

EPEAT Silver purchases are for public site computers, transitioning to EPEAT Gold for 2021 public site purchases. We are unable to separate out reporting for total spend on desktops and laptops, displays, thin clients, etc. and validate any EPEAT certifications on those until next year. Unfortunately, our reporting also pulls in peripherals, grossly inflating the numbers for overall spend. The EPEAT silver and gold spend is accurate.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Spend report includes all spend via Unimarket (eProcurement system) and Lehigh OneCard (via p-card).

Public site computer purchases were delayed by COVID-19. Despite this, the above data is mostly representative of a normal year.
