Additional documentation to support the submission:

This data was collected by Tom Cislo, although everyone on campus should purchase computers through him, there were surely some rouge purchases. So, although he reports 95% Gold and 5% Silver. I assumed a conservative 10% of purchases were made randomly and dropped the percentages to 86% and 4%.
I will once again add my disclaimer that this only covers purchases that I have made through my program.

*When using the EPEAT registry to determine sustainability standards for each model of computer, not all Dell electronics listed in our expenditures list were able to be found. Dell products that were not registered on the EPEAT list were assumed to be at the silver level, since almost all Dell products purchased listed on the registry met the silver standard.
