I am looking for supporting documentation or regulation to continue supplying manuals as GFE to contractors involved in new production and or repair. If documentation does not exist what is the recommended best practice. I would like to keep costs as low as possible without degrading Warfighter capability.
I spoke with the requester. He is trying to determine if there is a policy requiring inclusion of Operator Manuals with the return of a serviceable Class VII item (after it has been repaired). In my search I could not find any policy requiring this.

I recommend, as a best practice, that the operator manuals be converted to digital format. Field units could either access them on line or download the operator's manual. Once downloaded a hard copy can be printed (if required).
