Abstract: VAAR clause 852.211–70, Service Data Manual, is used when VA purchases technical medical equipment and devices, or mechanical equipment. The clause requires the contractor to furnish both operator’s manuals and maintenance/repair manuals with the equipment provided to the Government. This clause sets forth those requirements and sets forth the minimum standards those manuals must meet to be acceptable. Generally, this is the same operator’s manual furnished with each piece of equipment sold to the general public and the same repair manual used by company technicians in repairing the company’s equipment. The cost of the manuals is included in the contract price or listed as separately priced line items on the purchase order. The operator’s manual will be used by the individual actually operating the equipment to ensure proper operation and cleaning. The repair manual will be used by VA equipment repair staff to repair equipment. hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:39 Mar 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 Affected Public: Business or other forprofit; Individuals and households; and Not-for-profit institutions.
