A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn:
This data includes all purchases made in the 2018 calendar year by the university through the Campus Computer Store. The University's Information Communications and Technology Department (ICT) has a high degree of control over all electronic purchases made by the university. Only a very small number of desktop, laptop and monitor purchases are made from other suppliers, so this captures nearly all computer purchases. While the university has an unofficial policy that all electronics purchases are at least EPEAT Bronze, the failure of some purchasers to enter the EPEAT standard of many items on our performance year sell-through list has left a gap of $150,667 that cannot be confirmed with evidence as EPEAT certified.
