Additional documentation to support the submission:

Information compiled by Michael Logan, Director of Purchasing and Contracts. Data was collected from John Guffey (Spartan Printing) and data was obtained from our contracted suppliers that provide paper (Office Depot, Staples, MacPaper). These are the results of the information captured via UNCG's central purchasing points; purchases made by some individuals/departments cannot be captured through this system. Therefore, these results should be viewed as a large, representative sample of UNCG paper purchases.

Data is from 7-1-2017 through 4-25-2018
