a) 21,014,000 impressions were recorded during 2016. An impression is defined as a side of a page that contains toner. Printing on a single side of paper, regardless of whether the page is printed in monochrome or colour, is one impression. Printing on both sides of a piece of paper is 2 impressions. Scanning, copying and faxing does not produce an impression. This volume is generated by all Moray Council offices, including the staff and pupils at the 53 schools within Moray (8 secondary schools and 45 primary schools).Please note that this volume includes the central print room printing as these activities are included within the multi-functional device contract, and would take some considerable time to disaggregate.
c)18,297 (Schools: 15,100 and Corporate: 3,197)
d) This information is exempt under Section 33(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland0 Act 2002- Information which is considered commercially sensitive where its disclosure would substantially prejudice the commercial interests of any person. In this instance, as we have only one sole supplier, this information would prejudice their commercial interests.
e) 387 at the end of December 2016
