    They probably need to be ordered through EBuy. Whoever does the ordering in your work area for supplies (has access to EBuy) just needs to get the item number for the masks. Once they find the item number they will be ordered through the MDC in Topeka via EBuy.

    The authorized EBuy person can use the browse suppliers and click on MDC and type in the search for masks and you should get a pick list of what is available from Topeka.

    I am retired now so I can’t go on EBuy and find that number for you.
