Title: Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) Clause 852.211-70, Service Data Manual (previously 852.210-70).
OMB Control Number: 2900-0587.
Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
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 manual and maintenance/repair manuals with the equipment provided to the Government. This clause sets forth requirements and 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 same repair manual used by company technicians in repairing the company's equipment. The cost of the manuals is included in the contractor 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 operating and cleaning. The repair manual will be used by VA equipment repair staff to repair equipment.
