32216 covers the evaluation of your manuals, and is the means by which the
procuring agency determines if your existing manuals are fully acceptable
as-is, can be used with some sort of addendum or supplemental bulletins, or
if your product is just not acceptably documented at all and cannot be made
compliant without a complete document overhaul. Obviously, if your manuals
are already 38784-compliant you are gold to them; otherwise, they will use
the standard to determine whether additional documents are needed to
qualify your product.
