Green Procurement Plan - Part B: Scorecard - Learning Services

The significant part of the services will be producing online/web-based learning products versus traditional paper based instructional materials. Products will be transmitted electronically and stored on servers (Learning Management Systems), never needing to be printed. This will reduce paper and other materials traditionally used in the classroom.
