The Office Copier (MFP)Paper Billing Process


Paper Billing Introduction

Paper for the Office Copiers is provided free of charge, as long as it is used for its intended purpose.The amount of paper delivered to each copier is reconciled, quarterly or bi-annually, by comparing it to the usage of each copier (prints/copies).


Paper Billing Introduction (cont.)

Departments only receive a Paper Bill Notice when there is a discrepancy between their copier’s usage and paper delivered. Before the beginning of each Paper Billing cycle, an informational e-mail is sent out informing Key Operators of an upcoming Paper Billing Cycle.


The Visuals

The next several slides will show the steps that are completed by the Print department when reconciling the paper provided for each Office Copier.


This is a sample Invoice that is sent to departments when they are required to pay for Office Copier Paper

Verifying Signature (in reams)

Paper Inventory is completed via email or physically by our student assistant, and verified by a department contact.

Below is a sample of the worksheet used to record paper inventory. This shows the ending inventory from Dec. 2011, where 10.5 reams were recorded and verified, which is now the beginning inventory for the March 2012 paper billing cycle.

Paper Inventory Verification


The 10.5 reams is converted to total sheets by multiplying reams x 500 (sheets per ream). Beginning Inventory = Previous (Dec. 2011) Inventory Count. In this case the beginning inventory sheet count is 5,250


Total Paper Delivered = all delivered reams x 500 sheets (sheets per ream)

In this case, 12 reams were delivered between Jan. 1 to March 31, 2012, for a total of 6,000 sheets

When paper is delivered to a location, an Office Copier Supply form is signed by the department contact who received the supplies. The department is left with a yellow carbon copy of the form for their records. The PRNT department tracks all paper delivered to a location, which is entered into an internal worksheet.

Sample of

Delivery Receipt


An Ending

Paper Inventory is conducted and recorded.

Ending Inventory = Reams recorded x 500 sheets (sheets per ream)

In this case, 2 reams were recorded at the end of March 2012, for a total of 1,000 sheets


Total Paper Used = Beginning Inventory + Total Paper Delivered – Ending Inventory

In this case, 10,250 sheets of paper were used between Jan. 1, - March 31, 2012


A report is generated for each copier showing total Copies and Prints made during the Paper Billing Cycle. The totals are entered here and added together for a total impressions count.


From the same report, impressions that were printed or copied


ack to back (duplexed) are entered here.

The duplexed impressions are subtracted from the total impressions, giving the count of paper that was actually used.


Total Paper Used – Total Copies Made = Billable Sheets

Comparing the Total Paper Used to the Accounted Paper for C&P gives the number of sheets that are unaccounted for and are billable.


Net billable sheets = Billable sheets – 1 ream allowance (or 500 sheets)

Each Office Copier location is given a one ream allowance (500 sheets)


Net billable sheets is converted back to a rounded reams count.

Rounded to reams = Net billable sheets divided by 500 (# of sheets in a ream)


$6.50 x Rounded to Reams = Invoice Amount

The charge for a ream of paper is $6.50, which includes the cost of paper, tax, shipping, handling and delivery.



If a department does not have unaccounted paper during the Paper Billing Cycle, the Invoice Amount will be zero or less and no invoice is sent.


Paper Billing Final Steps


a balance is due for the copier

location, the worksheet is double checked for accuracy before emailing to the Key operator. Departments that receive an Invoice are given one week to review their invoice and contact us if there are questions or concerns.

If a department has questions about the charges, the worksheet will be audited and all back-up documentation for the copier location will be sent to the department.


Paper Billing Final Steps (cont.)

Once a copier location has approved the billing, the


rint department will charge the department through the Office Copier NowPrint account.

*Note: The department being billed will not need to submit any paperwork for billing

Final billing charges will appear on the department’s Insight report.
