Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
The Policies and Procedures for Environmentally Preferable Procurement require university personnel to purchase EPEAT certified electronics. However, due to the decentralized approach to procurement and strategic sourcing, the Office of Sustainability and Office of Procurement and Business Services have difficulty frequently tracking expenditures on EPEAT certified products across all Divisions, Colleges and Schools, and Departments.

This data reports on UMD’s larger electronics suppliers for quarter one of the 2021 fiscal year. The data was multiplied by four to represent the full calendar year. Single-attribute standards include RoHS and EnergySTAR certified electronics.

The University’s electronics purchasing is guided by the Maryland Green Purchasing Committee’s special guidelines on electronic equipment purchases. Read more at: https://dgs.maryland.gov/Pages/GreenPurchasing/Resources/Electronics.aspx
