eBuy2 Yearly Purchases of Five-Gallon Bottled Drinking Water Services From Nestle and DS Waters for Fiscal Year 2011

All sites purchasing yearly 5-gallon bottled water service from Nestle (marketed as Arrowhead, Calistoga, Deer Park, Ice Mountain, Ozarka, Poland Spring, or Zephyrhills), or from DS Waters (marketed as Alhambra, Belmont, Crystal Springs, Hinckley Springs, Kentwood Springs, Sierra Springs, or Sparkletts) are required to reorder yearly via eBuy2 “on-catalog” and are requested to process their req­uisitions for fiscal year (FY) 2011 before October 1, 2010.

All requisitions must to be processed and approved prior to October 15, 2010, to avoid a lapse in service. Processing of requisitions is required during this period because the supplier needs to have your FY 2011 on-catalog requisition in the eBuy2 system in order to invoice your FEDSTRIP.

(1) There are some sites that cannot receive service di­rectly from Nestle or DS Waters. These sites are au­thorized to purchase “off-catalog” as long as Nestle or DS Waters have stated they will not service those specific locations.

(2) This service is not for “emergency” national disaster–type bottled water purchases. For all “emergency” bottled water requirements, refer to Material Logis­tics Bulletin (MLB) MLB-CO-07-001, Amendment to the MLB for Water and Ice to American Water, Ice and Logistics. This MLB can be accessed at
