Additional documentation to support the submission:

We had FY2020 spend for Staples products, but calendar year 2020 spend for our other two janitorial suppliers. We did get data on product spend for products with green attributes and/or certifications, but out of our total spend for the year we could not break out how much of that was paper and how much janitorial. We chose to use the percent breakdown of paper vs. cleaning from the green category and apply that to the total spend.
