Additional documentation to support the submission:

We are unable to separate janitorial products from paper products; for this reason, we have included the total amount of Janitorial and Paper products into both categories, to avoid mis-interpreting information. Any difference in the percentage of third-party certified products purchased from one category would be offset by the other category.
