Print Management Audit Findings

The Print Management Audit undertaken in July 2015 has identified the University’s print consumption.

In July 2015 the Creating Headroom Project and the Procurement Department co-ordinated a print audit of the University’s print devices (excluding student print and Print Services).

The audit made the following observations:

  • At least 21,623,000 sides of paper were printed in July 2014-5

  • Approximately 17,500,000 sides were printed Mono and 4,000,000 in Colour

  • The University contains at least 870 print devices; a ratio of approximately 1 print device to every 3.8 members of staff.

  • Approximately half of print devices are colour and the other half mono.

The Creating Headroom Project is analysing data further to determine how the University could operate print management more efficiently and effectively.

Creating Headroom would like to encourage all staff to send in their ideas and will look to share more great case studies of savings from across the University in the near future.
