This credit was not impacted by COVID-19 and is thus representative of a normal year.

The public site computers are all EPEAT Gold, but we have no way to discern the non-public site spend, so they are noted as silver, as the purchase is reviewed by our IT consultants and silver is the level they recommend. These totals are comprised of spend within our eCommerce system and our OneCard (pCard) spend.
Computers (Unimarket): $782,670.35
Peripherals (Unimarket): $136,281.69
Peripherals (OneCard): $11,074.18
Grand Total: $930,026.22
GOLD (Public Sites): $95,267.43
Silver (calculations excludes OneCard spend): $782,670.35- $95,267.43 = $687,402.92
