A new evaluation was performed for the reaction system n + 55Mn in the neutron energy range from 0.001 to 150 MeV. The evaluation is based on the use of the ECIS96 and GNASH codes. A good description of available experimental data was achieved. A very limited set of existing evaluated data from the available international nuclear data libraries was used for the evaluation. The final general purpose data file was prepared in standard ENDF-6 format and was verified with standard format checking utilities. The data file will undergo benchmark testing and will be finally integrated into the JEFF-3.2 data library.
