Why Go Green
Criteria for Computers & Monitors
Must meet San Francisco Committee on Information Technology (COIT)/SF Approved Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Requirements. This policy requires that City departments purchase only EPEAT-Gold registered products. Exemptions to this policy can only be made by the Department of Technology.
Guide for City Staff
San Francisco was the first U.S. city to require City Departments to buy computers that meet the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Gold standard. City staff can buy EPEAT Gold registered computer equipment through the Technology Store contract. Unlike other citywide contracts, the Technology Store is a collection of prequalified vendors - not a list of products. Vendors on the Technology Store contract maintain listings of electronic products that meet the City's requirements, and also offer other services such as packaging takeback.
