Additional documentation to support the submission:

The above includes all products purchased for University departments through the two primary paper providers to campus during 2019. It does not include any purchases made by departments that were not through those providers or student paper purchase from other locations, as that data does not traceable. As purchasing practices shifted considerably during COVID, it was thought that pre-COVID procurement would be more indicative.
