Additional documentation to support the submission:

This is just paper purchased by offices. Data collected from the University Procurement Dept. This does not include all university copiers and printers that students use (mainly in the libraries) because those are serviced by an outside vendor and thus the costs aren't available. All of those use 35% recycled content paper.
