The numbers are from the 2020-2021 fiscal year, based on actual spent and do not include an additional $50,000 on leased printers. Our purchases are a mix of Gold and Bronze EPEAT, which is why Silver EPEAT is selected above. Monitors and Apple computers are GOLD EPEAT; PC desktops, laptops, wireless devices, and network servers are Bronze EPEAT.
