The College at Brockport has their own internal policies for purchasing computers, along with following the Office of General Services contract for purchasing computers. New York State is committed to environmental sustainability and endeavors to procure products with reduced environmental impact. One example of this commitment may be found in Executive Order No. 4 (Establishing a State Green Procurement and Agency Sustainability Program), which imposes certain requirements on state agencies, authorities, and public benefit corporations when procuring commodities, services, and technology. More information on Executive Order No. 4, including specifications for offerings covered by this Contract, may be found at http://www.ogs.state.ny.us/EO/4/Default.asp. The Executive Order No. 4 specification for desktop and laptop computers adopted in October 2008, for example, requires EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) registration, and references other considerations such as trade-in, recycling and use of certain flame-retardant chemicals. State entities subject to Executive Order No. 4 are advised to become familiar with the specifications that have been developed in accordance with the Order, and to incorporate them, as applicable, when making purchases under this Contract. State entities subject to Executive Order No. 4 are further advised to utilize the EPEAT.
