For the purposes of computing data for the OP-12 Part 2 credit, "Office Paper" was defined by us as letter, legal, and ledger sized copy paper. Figures are for Fiscal Year ending June 30, 2010.

Paper expenditures are based on stocking warehouses on our 3 main campuses. It should be noted that some of the stock from the warehouses gets disbursed to 3 satellite campuses not included in our Submission Boundary: Midtown Manhattan, Briarcliff, and White Plains Graduate Center.
