A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn:

These are the paper purchases that went through the university's central purchasing office in FY 2021. It does not include other ways in which employees may purchase paper. However, we have no reason to believe paper purchased on a purchasing card would differ in recycled content as compared with central purchasing.
