3) when the contract / arrangements are up for review.

4) Please provide information how your institution is addressing Scope 3 Carbon Emissions in relation with old technology as per our other 3 questions below. Further information on this can be found in this recent Bloomberg report below:

-- Local donations clearly provide reduction on Scope 3 emissions, they also prolong the life span of technology and help meet social obligations.
