A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn:

All expenditures are from fiscal year 2019/2020 (July 1st, 2019 - June 30th, 2020), across all campus departments. Data came from our primary strategically sourced office supplies vendor, which we believe is a representative sample. We were not able to acquire Amazon spend data because we don't have a University contract with them and there is not enough product level information they can provide at this time.
