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

We were only able to pull this current fiscal year's sales numbers, 7/1/2019-2/28/2020 from the Manager of Copying Services. We used this as a sample to generate the total expenditures for this fiscal year. (We attempted to get numbers for last fiscal year to match the performance years used elsewhere in our report, but were unable to.)

W&L does not track paper based on percentage of recycled content. We only have a category to see "FSC Rated" paper purchasing. It says these purchases fall into the "FSC Mix" and "FSC Recycled" categories, but we are unable to separate these two categories. It looks like the majority of the paper purchases fall under "FSC Mix", so we are lumping all "FSC Rated" into the "FSC Mix" category.
