NEW! Changes to the Waiver of Competition Form. Form 708.1.2f Customer Request for a Brand/Vendor Specific Waiver of Competition has been revised to eliminate some of the signatures needed, as well as retitled to Form 1232.1.1f Customer Request for a Brand/Vendor Specific Waiver of Competition to correspond with the proper policy.
