Drinking Water Dispensers agreement now active


In the midst of a summer heat wave, we were pleased to recently finalise the welcome re-tender and official launch of a refreshed Drinking Water Dispensers and Associated Services purchasing framework.

Free to use for CPC member institutions, the agreement provides dedicated purchasing guidance and support to enable the better buying of an array of drinking water solutions. By utilising this framework, institutions can effectively procure everything from plumbed in, bottled and hot water dispensers to integrated tap systems and external drinking fountains. Furthermore, the scope of the agreement spans a range of related and/or ancillary services; including, but not limited to, site surveys, sanitation checks and ongoing maintenance visits.

Divided into five lots, the framework connects schools, academies, colleges and universities with trusted and vetted specialists, with its six successful suppliers now confirmed as Alpine Vending, BWT, Culligan UK, Eden Springs, The FreshGround Coffee Service and Zip Water. The revised arrangement was activated on 6th June following a multi-month tendering process and will be available for a two-year period, with two optional 12-month extensions.

“We’re really pleased to get this re-tender completed and to continue providing our members with access to quality drinking water dispensers and services, especially at this time of year!” said the CPC Contract Manager, Adam Richardson. “With a great choice of suppliers, all experienced in their field, we’re confident this re-tendered framework will be a hit, and we’re here to provide the dedicated support our members expect”.
